A Recipe?

Not to be a totally eclectic Gemini, possibly losing the focus of this blog altogether, but I thought I’d post a recipe.  Since I don’t eat wheat, I was happy to finally come up with a gluten-free cornbread I could eat.  This one’s pretty good.  I guess it’s the xanthan gum ( a powder I got at Whole Foods) that gives it some texture.


Mix the following ingredients in a big bowl:

1/2 cup corn meal

1/2 cup corn flour

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1 Tbsp. xanthan gum

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/3 to 1/2 cup honey, depending on your sweet tooth

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup canola oil, corn oil or melted butter.

Spread in greased and floured square pan.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 20  minutes, until fairly browned on top and no longer gooey in the middle.  Good with chili or as a snack with honey or jam.

Enjoy the last of summer!
