Gluten Free {Or Not} Cornbread

Since I posted about making your own Cooking Spray and mentioned the gluten-free cornbread my son asked me to make for him…I’ve had several requests for the recipe. Since I hate to post anything without pictures…I’ve been putting it off until I made another batch. Which I did on Saturday. With mixed results. :-/

Why is it that the first time I have EVER come perilously close to BURNING this recipe is the one time I was making it to take pictures of for a blog post??? For some reason the song “Ironic” by Alanis Morrisette is running through my head today. :-)

I considered just waiting until I had ANOTHER chance to make it and photograph it….but what the heck….you all know I’m FAR from perfect! So there’s nothing to hide there. :-) And actually the cornbread TASTED wonderful. Not burnt at all. The damage turned out to be all cosmetic.

So here is the recipe that I use for my gluten free corn bread. It’s a recipe I found on called Sweet Cornbread Cake…but we just call it cornbread. However, it is fairly sweet…and we like it that way!


1 cup cornmeal
3 cups all-purpose flour (substitute 3 cups Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking Mix for GF version)
1 1/3 cups white sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons honey
4 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups whole milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl.

Pour in the vegetable oil, melted butter, honey, beaten eggs, and milk, and stir just to moisten.


Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, until the top of the cornbread starts to brown.

Now that I look at it digitally….it doesn’t look all that bad. :-)   And it definitely didn’t TASTE bad. I think there is one tiny piece left of the whole batch…and I’m not naming names….but there is only one person here who ate any of  it. ;-)

Guess it’s time to make some more!

    What other oils besides vegetable oils do you think would work? Coconut oil? I could melt it? Trying to stay with really healthy oils!

    Thanks in advance!

    What is the name of the cornmeal you use? Not all cornmeal is gluten free. Thanks

    I’ve used the same recipe for years, with GF Pantry’s AP flour. Good stuff!
