Make a delicious batch of this Easy Gluten Free Homemade Cornbread to pair with a tasty bowl of chili!
Do you prefer corn chips with your chili or cornbread? This is an ongoing debate in our home. My husband prefers corn chips.
When I grew up it was cornbread that always went with chili, it also ALWAYS went with my grandma’s vegetable soup too.
She would bring over a large bowl of her soup paired with the sweetest, wonderful cornbread. Now though, I think it was actually a Jiffy Cornbread mix. She was all about the mixes when they came out. I think it was a welcome surprise for so many back then when normally everything was made from scratch.
When I went gluten-free though, I quickly realized I had to find an alternative for my cornbread cravings. Thankfully, I fell in love with a recipe that we have used ever since.
This particular recipe is a nice mix between sweet and unsweet cornbread. My husband grew up with unsweet cornbread, which is not my thing at all.
I grew up with sweet cornbread, and he is not a huge fan of sweet cornbread.
So that left us with a nice challenge early on in married…what do you do?
Find the middle group, right? This has just the right levels of both to make us all happy. The kids love it, my husband loves it, and so do I! It’s a win!
We paired some homemade cornbread with Instant Pot Pumpkin Stew this past week and it was wonderful. I’ll be sharing the recipe for Instant Pot Pumpkin Stew on Wednesday.
Be sure to stay tuned for that one, it’s a great one to make if you are in need of a quick meal.
Do you need several flours to make Gluten Free Homemade Cornbread?
NOPE! I only use ONE flour for nearly everything that I make gluten-free, Better Batter Gluten Free All Purpose Flour.
In full disclosure, I have partnered with them for years, so maybe I’m biased? I do believe though that their flour is the BEST. It is interchangeable with regular flour and there isn’t a single recipe have I have made were it didn’t work.
That’s at least 7 years of cooking with their flour and it’s always worked perfectly.
It does just what it’s supposed to in this Gluten Free Homemade Cornbread too.
Can you use this Homemade Cornbread recipe even if you aren’t gluten free?
Of course, simply use regular flour, it’s that easy!
