Gluten Free Mama’s Easy Gluten Free Cornbread

cornbread 1

Just wait till you sink your teeth into this deliciously light, moist, and flavorful gluten free cornbread.  You will be surprised how easy it is to whip up and how quick it will be devoured by your family and friends. In fact, animals love it too!  When I was enjoying a piece hot out of the oven, my St. Bernard stared at me and drooled until I was forced to give in to her sweet little face and gave her my last bite.  She was so happy.  I think she was spoiled.

I made mine in just a plain pie pan.  I thought it gave it a nice round touch, and was perfect for display.  Traditionally, cornbread is made in square pans and then cut into squares, but don’t feel limited to that.  You could also bake in right in a cast-iron skillet like they did in the old days. Try it out in a muffin tin, as mini muffins, in a round casserole dish, in a pie pan (like I did), in mini bread pans, whatever you have readily available.  You can even spice it up by adding a small can of diced roasted Anaheim chili peppers, or a cup of frozen or fresh corn.  Pairs nicely with Mama’s Hearty 3 Bean Chili too!
