Hearty Corn Bread (Gluten-Free)

Oftentimes, I am asked to take dinners to families in my Church Congregation who could use a meal for whatever reason–new baby, surgery, funerals, etc. Since I know how to cook Gluten-free foods, I often volunteer to bring dinners to those families who need to avoid wheat. This is a variation on my Hearty Corn Bread to fit those needs.

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 1/3 Cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cups Bob’s Red Mill Stone Ground Gluten-Free Cornmeal
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
  • 6 Tablespoons water
  • 1/2 Cup Applesauce
  • 2 Cups Milk or Almond Milk


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a 9 x 13 inch cast iron pan.
  • Place pan into the oven while preparing ingredients—no longer than 6-8 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.
  • Add wet ingredients to large bowl of dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
  • Remove hot pan from oven and pour batter into the pan. It will immediately begin to cook the edges to provide a perfectly toasted crust.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cut two lines down and 4 lines across. Serve with butter and honey. Devour!


I grind my own wheat and always use White Winter wheat berries when baking this recipe. Of course, if I am making this for a gluten-free friend, I use the gluten-free options mentioned in the ingredients above. You know the corn bread is done when it begins to pull away from the edges of the pan as shown:
