Gluten-Free Vanilla Cornbread Recipe

Gluten-free vanilla cornbread is not your typical, corny cornbread. It's got style. Cake is jealous.


Gluten free vanilla cornbread recipe

Playing Dress Up.


This is not your average weeknight cornbread. You know, the one you toss together from a gluten-free mix to serve with a bowl of white chicken chili as you catch up with Mad Men. Nope. This tender cake-like cornbread is a pinch more elegant. A gently sweet treat you might serve at high tea with a gaggle of girlfriends (or low tea, depending upon the company you keep). Picture fresh cut flowers on the table, stemmed glasses filled with dewy fresh berries, a pot of Earl Grey tea or organic chamomile buds steeping beneath a cozy.

This is the sort of cornbread that begs to be served with style. That longs to be gussied up. The kind of cornbread you eat with a fork.

A cornbread that secretly dreams of being cake.

Karina's Gluten-Free Vanilla Cornbread Recipe

Recipe posted May 2010 by Karina Allrich.

This isn't the typical green chile studded cornbread we usually make around here. It has more brown sugar than my original recipe (gasp!) and a dose of deeply dark bourbon vanilla extract. It sports a touch more cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg. Which makes this  cornbread perfect for tea time or brunch. Serve it when you need a little civilized indulgence in your life.

Ingredients:

Whisk together:

1 cup certified gluten-free cornmeal
3/4 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup tapioca starch or sweet rice flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 rounded teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon fine sea salt


Add in and stir well:

2 organic free-range eggs (or 1 tablespoon Ener-G Egg Replacer whisked with 1/4 cup warm water)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil (or light olive oil)
1 cup very warm water (I microwave it for 30 seconds)
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon bourbon vanilla extract

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 375ºF. Grease and prepare a 9-inch cake pan or line it with parchment paper.

Beat by hand until a smooth batter is formed, about one minute. Add up to 2 extra tablespoons of warm water, if needed, to thin. The batter should be like thick cake or muffin batter- but not too stiff.

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake in the center of a pre-heated oven for 25 to 35 minutes (depending upon your altitude), until firm to the touch in the center. Here at sea level it baked in 30 minutes. (A wooden pick inserted into the center should emerge dry.)

Place the pan on a wire rack and allow the cornbread to rest 15 minutes before cutting. This helps keep the slices from crumbling apart. Use a very sharp knife to slice it into pieces.

Serve warm and offer heated maple syrup for dipping. Or add fresh berries to the side with a dollop of tangy yogurt.

Yields 8 to 10 slices.

Recipe Notes:

I have also made this cornbread with a half cup less brown sugar, I confess. It's less sweet (duh) and more akin to a hearty, regular cornbread with a hint of vanilla. So if you prefer your treats with less sugar, try it with less, and let me know what you think.
The deep golden color of the cornbread comes from the organic light brown sugar.

I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Cornmeal because the cornmeal is milled in a dedicated gluten-free facility (an aspect becoming more and more important to me). The texture is less refined, more stone-ground (you can see the flecks of the cornmeal in the photograph). I love the whole grain texture. --And, as always, I bought the cornmeal on my own, it was not given to me as a sample to publicize
