"This cornbread is even better than the old Bisquick cornbread I used to make before we went GFCF. I like it because it is softer and less grainy than typical cornbread (GF AND Soft?? YES) Everyone I have served this too has told me it's better than traditional cornbread with gluten! **I use a flour mix from in my recipe."

    A Note about Gluten and Casein Free Ingredients: Since my family began this diet, we have discovered that you always have to read the labels on the foods you buy. This week when shopping I may buy something that is clearly gfcf and next week when I look for the same item I will notice they have changed the ingredient list adding dry milk, or maltodextrin, or some other questionable ingredient. I find that it's best to stick to unprocessed foods whenever possible- make it from scratch. My son is on the autism spectrum, its not the end of the world if he gets a little gluten or casein, while it may ruin his day, it isn't life threatening. I always watch him for symptoms and note the offending food. Please keep this in mind while selecting your ingredients for my GFCF recipes. Happy Careful Shopping! :)
