Recipe type: Bread, Side Dish, Fall
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free optional
Serves: 16 slices
Recipe makes an 8x8 pan. Double quantities for a 9x13 pan.
  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour (we used GF Jules - affiliate link))
  • 1 cup gluten-free yellow cornmeal
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon + ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup butter or dairy free butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk or dairy free milk of choice (unflavored) (we've made it with skim milk - whole milk)
  • 1 egg, whisked
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line an 8x8 pan (or 9x13 if doubling the recipe) with parchment paper, or grease pan well.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, corn meal, sugar, baking powder, salt) using either a whisk or the whisk attachment of a stand mixer.
  3. Make a well in the center and remaining ingredients (melted butter, whisked egg, milk) and using a spoon or the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, mix to combine, scraping down the sides as needed, so that batter is smooth and without clumps. Do not over mix.
  4. Pour the batter into prepared baking pan, use a spatula to spread or gently rock pan the pan side to side so that batter is even and in the corners.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes uncovered, then cover loosely with foil and bake an additional 5 minutes, or until top is golden and a toothpick comes out of the center clean.
  6. Remove from oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Gently lift the parchment paper out of the pan and onto a cutting board, slice and enjoy!
  7. Serve as is or enjoy with butter and/or honey.
  8. Store extra in a sealed container for up to 2 days, reheat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to warm.
