For us, Thanksgiving dinner is all about the yummy side dishes. We believe that even if you’re following a gluten-free diet, you should be able to enjoy the classics with everybody else. Fortunately, recipes like this gluten-free cornbread allow you to do just that.
Gluten-free baking can be tricky, as the texture of gluten-free baked goods tends to be much different than regular baked goods. However, this gluten-free cornbread is a real winner when it comes to replicating authentic cornbread taste and texture.
This cornbread is moist and tender and has none of the usual graininess that’s associated with gluten-free baked goods. It’s just as sweet and flavorful as traditional cornbread, but it’s made with gluten-free ingredients.
All you really have to do to make cornbread gluten-free is use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend with a little bit of xanthan gum. Together, the two are able to replicate the structure of the bread, and with the cornmeal, replicate the texture.
Best of all, this gluten-free cornbread recipe doesn’t take any more effort to make than traditional cornbread. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare this recipe and another 20 minutes to bake.
