This sweet moist cornbread is perfect on its own, with soup or chili , or if you’re my Cece with butter and dripping in honey!

Gluten Free Cornbread

We are not gluten-free, but I like to have certain recipes that I can make so that when the opportunity arises to bring someone a meal that’s gluten-free, I’m ready!  It used to freak me out, if someone was vegetarian, peanut free, or gluten-free.  But now I’ve got a few recipes that I know will work and people seem to like so that’s what I make.

I will say,  after dropping this meal off at my cousin’s house and talking to her about why they are mostly gluten-free;  I’m wondering if I shouldn’t give gluten-free a try.  I have been struggling with some intestinal issues…if you know what I mean.  Also I have had a lingering cold for…well forEVER.  Nose always running.  Also I’m always tired.  And bloated.  What do you think?  I need to google it, I guess.  Maybe make a doctors appointment….I hate going to the doctor with vague symptoms.  Last time I did…well that’s a story for another time.  Are you gluten-free?  May I ask why?  I’d love to hear your story.

So anyway this recipe is basically my cornbread/ strawberry shortbread recipe that I changed up a bit to make it gluten-free.  And it worked wonderfully, and tastes amazing!  Not sure I’ll ever make it the old way again.

This cornbread makes great strawberry short-cake! 
The leftovers can also be made into croutons. Cut into cubes, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a cast iron skillet and toss the cubes around until browned and crispy on all sides.  Use for salads, or stuffing.

  1. I’m mostly gluten free because of thyroid issues. The brownie bark recipe at artofglutenfreebaking.com is really good. I use Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 baking flour in it.
