Extremely Easy Gluten Free Cornbread!



Gluten free cornbread is always included at every Thanksgiving and Christmas of mine. It's almost a must have at every Thanksgiving dinner and it's one of my favorites too! I hate recipes with tons of ingredients because when you're preparing for Thanksgiving, the more time you can save, the better. I share this gluten-free cornbread recipe of mine every year because it is so easy to make, and delicious too! It's gluten-free and can be made dairy free as well with the milk listed below. You really wouldn't know it's gluten-free if you served at Thanksgiving and I know it's a recipe everyone at the dinner table would enjoy.

What people have said about this gluten-free cornbread recipe:
"This is delicious and moist! Best cornbread I have had in years."

"I made corn muffins instead of corn bread (no changes to the recipe), and they were fantastic. My whole family loved them!"

"I made this cornbread yesterday and it was amazing. I'd been missing cornbread so much since I had to gluten free. It was so close to the recipe I used to use that I ate almost half pan by myself!"


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup gluten-free bisquick (see link)
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup refined sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk (Soy, Almond, or Coconut is dairy free)
  • 1/3 cup applesauce 
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray or lightly grease a 9 inch cake pan. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine gluten free Bisquick, cornmeal, sugar, salt
  3. Stir in egg, milk and applesauce until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. 
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!

If you can include the size of the pan you used for the corn bread that is in the photo or the servings per receipe, that would be great!!

I was looking for a recipe to replace the 1 box of Jiffy cornbread mix for my corn pudding and this is it, I hope. I need to replace the box of dry cornbread mix. Do you think this will work? The recipe is as follows:
1 box Jiffy cornbread mix,1 can cream corn, 1 can kernel corn, 1 cup sour cream, 1 stick butter...melted. mix together and bake@ 350 for 50 minutes. It is fabulous!!

I think it would work ok! I don't see why not. It has great texture and is like any other cornbread except it's gluten-free!

Rae Downing said...

So how is this better -- bisquick ingredients: enriched flour bleached (wheat flour, niacin, iron, thiamin, mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil, leavening (baking soda, soduim aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate), dextrose, salt. Enriched flour has gluten, dextrose is sugar, soy is bad and cottonseed oil is rancid! How again is this better for you?

Taylor Miller said...

Gluten-free bisquick is different from original bisquick and features different ingredients. Also I never said it was better for you. Any cornbread recipe of course isn't going to be healthy but it's always nice to give people options for those who cannot enjoy it. This is just an easy gluten-free alternative to cornbread but I never said it was better.

This is delicious and moist! Best cornbread I have Had in years. Thanks!

Taylor Miller said...

No problem! Glad you liked it!

My roommate (Celiac) and me (not) made this for dinner tonight, and it was all kinds of wonderful. I couldn't even tell it was gluten free!

Have you developed at lot of the recipes on here yourself? If so, color me impressed! If not, I'm still impressed by the number of recipes you've curated here.

Taylor Miller said...

I actually have developed all these recipes myself besides the ones where I source the developer. Glad you and your roommate liked it! Thanks for commenting! :)

Shari said...

Taylor, thank you for your lovely recipe. Can't wait to try it! Makes me so sad for you and other food bloggers who have to tolerate those mean and nasty folks who are so ready and eager to post arrogant and critical comments. Hope you are able to look beyond them to the people who appreciate what you are doing. Take care, and God bless you!

Mary Beth said...

just found your site! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. I like making 'regular food' without a lot of weird ingredients. Since my husband doesn't need to eat gluten free, I like recipes that don't seem that much changed. This corn bread fits the bill!

I make gluten-free corn bread with corn meal only. I like it better than any with flour, including Bisquick!

Excellent cornbread recipe! Thanks for posting it. I exchanged a couple of measurements....a little under 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 cup of cornmeal. It was wonderful. =)

Rene Thurston said...

Hi - I hope you still check this thread!! :) I have all the ingredients to make this tonight EXCEPT the applesauce. Is there something else I could substitute? Another egg perhaps? Thanks in advance!

Taylor Miller said...

Hi Rene! The applesauce is what makes it sweater so I would try adding more milk and possibly some more sugar to sweeten it. I've never tried it without applesauce so I can't make any promises! Hope that helps and good luck!

I made corn muffins instead of corn bread (no changes to the recipe), and they were fantastic. My whole family loved them. Thank you so much!

Thank you for sharing your own recipes that we can easily make and enjoy! I don't have the skills to come up with my own GF recipes, so I sincerely appreciate your talent!

I made this cornbread yesterday and it was amazing. I'd been missing cornbread so much since I had to gluten free. I made one small change, which was substituting 1/4 cup melted butter for the applesauce. It was so close to the recipe I used to use that I ate almost half pan by myself yesterday. Thank you so much this recipe.

Taylor Miller said...

You're welcome all! It's one of my favorites!

Cathy said...

Do you think this would work if I substituted my gluten free flour blend for the bisquick? Thx!

Elaine McCormick said...

It was very good! My family even thought it was better than Jiffy mix! Thank you!

Toni said...

Sometimes I like sweet cornbread but overall I'd rather have it not so sweet. Do you know what to replace the sugar with in this recipe? Besides that it seems great and easy to make!!

Sharon DeLeon said...

How many does this recipe serve? I am planning on making it for a big crowd to go with Chili.

Hi what a great recipe especially for such a young blogger!! I hope you still read these comments, I was wondering what brand or brands of Cornmeal you like and do they have to say gluten free or just plain old cornmeal?? So confused thanx!

I just made this tonight and it was great! Thanks so much!

I made this cornbread for Thanksgiving (I had a guest with Celiacs) Everyone loved it. My daughter devoured it and she can be picky. Thanks so much for this recipe.

Katrina said...

Where do you buy gluten free cornmeal?

Taylor Miller said...

Cornmeal should be easily found in most grocery stores in the baking aisle. I've never hard problems finding it!
