Gluten-free Cornbread

The concept of gluten-free was very foreign to me up until about two years ago when a childhood friend of mine was diagnosed with Celiac disease. My cousin's little girl was also diagnosed with it recently. So in honor of them, here is a gluten-free recipe.

To learn more about celiac disease, check out the Celiac Disease Foundation's website.


  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray or lightly grease a 9 inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir in egg, milk and vegetable oil until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
