Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Cornbread Mix

I am so excited that Bob’s Red Mill has been expanding their line of gluten-free products – many of which are also dairy-free. Over the holidays I found this Cornbread mix from Bob’s Red Mill, and decided to try it.

Of course, I had to adapt it so that we didn’t add any allergens. Instead of adding milk, butter, and eggs, I added hemp milk, sunflower oil, and I used Ener-G egg replacer for the eggs.

The result was not quite what I expected. Usually when I think of cornbread I think of a moist, grainy bread, with a strong corn taste. I found the Bob’s Red Mill mix to be much milder and more “bready” than the typical cornbread. I made mine into muffins, but had I made a loaf this would have made a good slicing bread for sandwiches.

The grains in this bread mix are cornmeal, potato starch, sorghum flour, corn flour, and tapioca flour.

If you’re looking for the standard cornbread mix, this isn’t it. If you’re looking for a good gluten-free bread with a hint of corn taste that can successfully be made allergen-free, this is a great choice.

I love eating bread but my celiac disease won't allow me though to eat just any bread on the store. I'll better head to the nearest store and buy gluten free products Long Island like this cornbread mix so I could bake my own bread.
