"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."

2 Tbsp

1/3 c

1 c
casien free milk ( i use coconut or almond- soy works too) or water
1 Tbsp
apple cider vinegar
1/3 c

for best results use a 10 inch well seasoned cast iron skillet
if you don't have cast iron you can use a 9 inch round or square cake pan, or even a glass pan but it won't taste quite as good :)

How to Make GFCF Southern Style Cornbread


  • 1Preheat oven to 450 F. Heat coconut oil in a cast iron skillet if using, or just melt it in your baking pan while the oven preheats.
  • 2Add 1 tbsp vinegar to 1 cup casein free milk or water and set aside
  • 3Mix together dry ingredients with a whisk.
  • 4Make a well in your dry mixture and add remaining ingredients. Mix well.
  • 5Pour batter into hot greased skillet, or baking pan. Bake until the sides pull away from the pan a bit and the top will usually crack a bit.
  • 6A 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! :)
