Gluten Free Cast Iron Cornbread!


Recently my family has started to go gluten free....problem is in my small town not much is available on the store shelves. I had a box of cornbread in my closet only to find out it was not gluten free! Luckily after much searching I was able to find a recipe I could alter enough to suit my tastes.lol


Gluten Free Cast Iron Cornbread
3/4 Cup rice flour
1 Cup cornmeal
2 to 3 Tablespoons of sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon butter
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt) together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Melt the one tablespoon of butter in a 10 inch cast-iron skillet(you can use smaller for thicker cornbread)
  4. Swirl the butter around the pan coating the bottom and sides.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and 1/4 cup butter.
  6. Add this mixture all at once to the flour mixture and stir.
  7. Pour batter into the hot skillet or baking pan. 
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm.

Gluten Free is wonderful! Isn't it crazy that cornbread isn't gluten free? I would expect it to be..years ago when my mom was diagnosed with celiac (back before everyone seemed to have it) we had a really hard time finding gluten free foods for her, she mostly ate salad and protein, but now, even Domino's has gluten free pizza!
