"This recipe raises well and yields a light and fluffy gluten free, dairy free cornbread. Cornbread is light and fluffy, but somewhat crumbly. Letting cool for 5-10 minutes before serving helps with crumble."

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, water, and vegetable oil in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. Stir together the cornmeal, millet flour, rice flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a separate large bowl, and make a well in the center. Pour the liquid mixture into the well and stir just until combined.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake in the preheated oven until golden and the top springs back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes.

My family and I loved this cornbread. I followed the suggestions of others and used the xanthan gum. Since I wanted a little more cornmeal flavor, I used 1-3/4 cups cornmeal and 1-3/4 cup glut...

We really enjoyed this recipe! I made it as described and was amazed how truly bread-like it was. I will definitely make again. Next time, I may try adding more sweetener, likely honey or aga...

Excellent! Delicious! Soft and fluffy! Better than gluteny cornbread :) A+

is a bit drier than traditional cornbread, but that can be remedied by melting butter on top! deliciouso!

Loved it ! I'm not one to change up and recipe, then review it, but I didn't have Millet Flour so I just used rice flour instead. I ignored the comments on it being dry because cornbread is alw...
