How to Make Cornbread with Applesauce


  1. Preheat oven to 375^. Lightly grease a 7x4-inch bread pan-bottom only,Fit a piece of heavy foil lengthwise in pan so foil hangs over ends of pan ;to lift out easily later; Spray bottom only;set aside.
  2. Pour rice milk and apple cider vinegar into a small bowl, but DO NOT stir; set aside.(this makes buttermilk)
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, cornflour, baking powder, soda, xanthan gum and salt. Add the oil, agave , applesauce and vanilla to the dry ingredients. Stir until combined.
  4. Pour in the apple cider mixture, and mix gently, until fully blended and a slightly grainy batter is formed.
    Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with some kosher salt, if desired. Bake on the center rack for 30 minutes, rotating after 20 minutes.
  5. The cornbread will bounce back slightly when touched and a toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean. Let stand in pan for 15 minutes, run a knife down sides to loosen, then gently remove by lifting by the foil.
    Can be eaten warm or cool.
