This gluten-free cornbread recipe is also dairy-free. The texture is just like my traditional cornbread: moist, slightly fluffy, and not too sweet.
I never liked cornbread. It always tasted dry, flavorless, and gritty to me. Then I started making my own traditional cornbread. It was moist and fluffy, and I fell in love with this Southern staple.
When I discovered that I am gluten intolerant, moist, delicious cornbread just wasn’t something I was willing to give up. This gluten-free cornbread recipe is an adapted version of my original cornbread—and it’s dairy-free. Gluten-free cornbread is the perfect accompaniment to Easy, Make-Ahead Chili.
How to make gluten-free cornbread
Gluten-free cornbread is just as easy to make as traditional cornbread. You just need to adjust a few ingredients.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Mix the dry ingredients.
Use a medium bowl and a wire whisk for best results.
- Add the liquid ingredients.
Stir with a fork until the batter is only slightly lumpy. Don’t overmix.
- Pour the batter into a lightly greased iron skillet.
You can also use a loaf pan or other baking pan.
- Bake for 25 – 30 minutes.
It is done when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
This gluten-free cornbread recipe is easy, tastes great, and reheats like a dream.
For summer camping, make it ahead of time, and freeze or refrigerate individual servings in tight containers. Then zap the cornbread in the microwave for a quick treat. For winter camping, bake it in the RV, and let your oven—and the cornbread—provide cozy warmth.
We took the RV across Texas to have a “nontraditional” Thanksgiving with our son, and cornbread was a key feature.
We hope you enjoy this recipe!
