Northern Style Gluten Free Cornbread

When it comes to cornbread I will always be a northern girl at heart.  I have a southern style cornbread that I is naturally gluten free that my family loves, but it is a bit heavy for my tastes.

I prefer my cornbread light and fluffy, and more cake like. Light and fluffy cornbread is what I grew up with. It is the kind that contains more flour than cornmeal, and contains a little sugar. You know the kind that makes a true southerner cringe.

A true southerner would never put sugar in their cornbread, and good southern cornbread has little or no flour in it.

Well, I was recently determined to adapt my favorite northern style cornbread to be gluten free. It was actually pretty easy to adapt and turned out very well. My whole family enjoyed this.

How do you like your cornbread? Are you a northerner or southerner?

  1. I grew up in New Orleans which is about as far south as one can get but I prefer my cornbread northern style. Blasphemy I know but that’s what I grew up with at home since my parents are from the midwest. Thanks for the reicpe.

  2. Sounds like a winner to me!! I grew up in Maine, so I guess I’m a Yankee at heart! I’m not really crazy about Cornbread, but it would have to have sugar and flour in it. I’ll have to try it. Thanks for posting it.

  3. I’m a northerner and the northern style is what I grew up and always thought the southern dry style “gross” when I was growing up. When I transplanted south, the taste grew on me. I’ve got a craving for the sweeter Johnny cake type right now though.
