Slightly sweet, delicious gluten free corn bread

To make this corn bread recipe gluten free, I use a mix of corn meal and all-purpose gluten free flour mix. The blends of gluten free flours provide a nice texture and flavor. My favorite blends include Namaste Perfect Flour Blend, which I buy at Costco. Or Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1:1 flour blend. Simple corn bread was one of the first kinds of bread I started making when I went gluten free.

Corn bread is a perfect accompaniment to chili or soups. It also makes a great quick breakfast on the go.

I’ve made gluten free corn bread in a number of different ways. You can use a standard muffin pan, a loaf pan or a square cake pan. Just make sure the pans are greased well. Baking time will vary somewhat depending on the size of the pans. You’ll know when it’s done mainly from the aroma. It smells delicious. The top will be a nice golden brown and a toothpick will come out clean when inserted in the center.
