Gluten Free Cornbread

We like a sweeter cornbread, so this is doused in warm butter and honey. Tonight we had chili and cornbread because it is my husband's favorite. If you haven't seen Rachel Ray's beer chili recipe, check it out- it's amazing. I only had Bud Light and not a stout beer, but it was still great. Back to the cornbread...SO good. It is VERY difficult to tell this is gluten free. Our kids
fight over this, which means you definitely need to try it!

Gluten Free Cornbread

1 cup Jules or other all purpose gf flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
3 T. sugar
2 1/2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. salt
1 T. butter
2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter-melted

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Mix dry ingredients and whisk
3. Mix eggs, milk and 3/4 c. melted butter
4. Mix dry ingredients slowly into wet ingredients until just mixed-do not over stir
5. Place the 1 T. butter in your round baking dish and place in hot oven until butter is melted (about 1 minute)
6. Pour batter into buttered round pan
7. Bake 15-20 min. or until a toothpick comes out clean!

***I don't recommend using any type of electric mixers...Wooden spoons and spatulas work great and prevent over-mixing which just gets you heavy brick-like baked goods.

This delicious recipe comes from http://glutenfreemommy.com/

I know chili isn't baking, and this blog is about GF baking, but for those new to celiac disease, it's a good idea to add that the Bud Light used in the chili is NOT gluten free! Probably not safe for your husband's colitis, either (beer has barley - only a few malt beverages are brewed such that the gluten in the barley malt is transformed, and the only one I know that is tested is Mike's Hard Light Lemonade). Looks like a good corn bread recipe, though.

I just found your blog off of Pinterest!!! I am so glad I did. I have NEVER read that any one has gone gluten free because of colitis. Until now.
I am in the middle of a flare up and have gone gluted, dairy, nut, seed and raw-free. Bleah.
My doctor is convinced food has nothing to do with Colitis, unless you are in a flare up, and then he "thinks it affects how you recover."
I am encouraged by your blog and am looking forward to trying your recipes for a long time.

Lynn, I'm so glad you found my blog. My husband finally sought a Naturopath physician because his MD didn't take into account nutrition/diet. Our Naturopath Phys. suggested that gluten can cause flare-ups in someone with a bowel disease so we tried the diet. Hands down best decision ever. My husband was able to get off all his steroid medications and rely solely on a GF diet to help avoid flare-ups. It has worked for him so I'd recommend giving it a shot! Good Luck! :)
