I have been absent for some time and I apologize. It is not because I don’t have anything to say trust me! I have had so many ideas in my head and have wanted to get on here to share them all with you, however; I just started back at school and having to adjust from my summer schedule to my school schedule and it always takes me a few weeks to adjust. I have a hard time finding a rhythm when my schedule changes but I am working on it! I think I also need to start writing things down the minute they pop into my head that way my idea’s won’t pile up. I am a work in progress my friends.
ANYWAY! I have wanted to share a corn bread recipe with you for some time now. I LOVE cornbread. I love to eat it with breakfast and dinner. I especially love this cornbread recipe because I didn’t use your typical gluten-free baking products that are in a lot of recipes, such as xanthan gum.
I am working on becoming more adventurous in the kitchen when it comes to gluten-free baking and this was one of my first conquests and I am lucky it came out great! Someone once told me “there are no mistakes when it comes to cooking, only learning opportunities.” that has stuck with me and I think of it every time I go on a new cooking adventure.
So if you’re hankering for some cornbread give this a try
Preheat oven to 350
1 cup Gluten Free Cornmeal
1 cup Amaranth Flour (a wonderful sweet/nutty flavor flour)
1/4 stick of butter or 1/3 cup coconut oil
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup Almond Milk (unsweetened)
and a sprinkle of salt
Mix dry ingredients first. In a separate bowl beat the wet ingredients until combined. Beat the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients slowly until all combined. In a greased pan (I used an 8×8 pirex) pour the batter and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
While baking enjoy the sweet scent of maple syrup and the amaranth flour.
That’s it! I have made this several times now and love it every time! I love to have it with fresh sea scallops or eggs on a Sunday morning.
What is your favorite gluten-free baked good?
Peace, love and Eat Well!
