Hi Granny

:D In your post you mentioned that you eat cornbread. Since the only way I know to make it is with meal and flour have you found a way to make it without the flour? If you have please let me know. I love cornbread and haven't had any since going gluten-free in November.

I'd appreciate your recipe.

Thanks, Lucy :D

Hi Lucy:

I found a great corn bread recipe, it may the same as Granny's if not we will have 2 recipes for it (YUMM) :D

This recipe comes from the Incredible Edible Gluten Free Food for kids cookbook:

I have made it several times and it is AWESOME!!! Even my picky 8 year old Celiac loves it and so does my non - celiac son and husband!

1 cup corn meal

1/2 cup rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 cup milk

1/4 cup oil

In a medium bowl, combine corn meal, rice flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk and oil

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until the batter is smooth. Do not overbeat.

Pour into a greased 9x9x2 inch baking pan. Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

Let me know how it turns out for you & ENJOY!!!! :)

On the subject of cornbread, I just use the recipe in my old Betty Crocker cookbook and substitute corn flour for the wheat, add 1 more egg or egg replacer and some xanthium gum. Corn flour is like corn meal only finer and works well.

:D Thanks for the recipes. They sound great. My biggest problem is that I live in a very small town in the mountains of Southeastern Kentucky and the only place that carries anything gluten-free is the local Food City and that's Rice flour. I can't find any of the other ingredients like the different flours and the Xanthium Gum. When I say rural I mean rural. ;) I count myself lucky that I found the rice flour. I know I could order the things online but I really can't afford it. I'll copy the recipe's just in case I come across the ingredients.

Thanks a lot.

Lucy :D

Lucy,

My recipe is SOOO similar to the other one posted here but here it is. I got it off the back of a bag of cornmeal. I only substituted rice flour for the wheat flour they had suggested, then I thought about the potato flour and added it.

CORNBREAD

1 1/2 cups cornmeal

1/3 cup rice flour (see note below)

potato flour (see note below)

4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup milk

1/4 cup oil

1 egg

combine dry ingredients in a med. bowl. I put my wet ingr. into a mixing up in order given. 1 c. milk +1/4 c. oil=1 1/4 c. total then I add the egg and wisk or dump into dry ingr. depending on my mood. I'm a very technical cook! <grin>

I stir to combine and either fry or bake at 425 for 25 min. The recipe also calls for 1/4 c. sugar but I omit it, my preferrence.

** note: I measure out the 1/3 c. rice flour, then pour this into a 1/2 c. and continue to fill it with potato flour till it's level and it worked for me. I have no idea how much potato flour that is. I hadn't thought about the exanthan gun and maybe 2 eggs but I may try jhmom's recipe just for a change. I agree that 2 recipes for 1 item is no problem!! Enjoy your cornbread!! Granny

Hi Granny

Lucy,

I forgot to mention that I usually have to add extra milk to this recipe. It makes up to thick to fry by the recipe, I guess because of the rice flour, so I just add milk till it stirs up to a consistancy that looks and cooks OK. I've only baked it once and don't remember if I added any then. I think the 2 eggs might help it not be so crumbly, if you don't have the potato flour(that's why I added it).

I understand how hard it is to locate gluten-free stuff because I can't even get rice flour in our rural OK town. My daughter works in anouther town and got it for me. I can go 30-40 miles in 3 directions and go to a health food store. I have friends and family pick up stuff as they travel to these places and as I can afford it, and they've been a big help. Granny

:D Thanks Granny

I will try the recipe. I also see where there are others added some too. I have spent the last 2 months trying to find recipe's that I can convert into food I can eat. I found a ground beef pizza crust and made it the other nite and it was delicious. Of course it might have just been all the ingredients I added on top. ;)

I have family that lives in more populated areas too but they keep forgetting to bring me stuff, and of course I forget to remind them. :rolleyes: I have a sister who is coming to visit from NJ next month and she's supposed to bring me some of the things I need. I hope so anyway. I just hope we can both remember to remind each other. :D

Thanks Jessica, I buy the Red Mill rice flour but I have been getting the brown and I didn't see that one. I'll give that a try too. :)

Lucy, maybe you can make the cornbread anyway. I make cornbread with corn flour and cornmeal, and cornmeal is available at ANY market, so maybe you could combine it with rice flour. My creation calls for:

2 egg yolks (I have allergies to egg whites)

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup Imperial Margarine (I'm allergic to butter, milk & dairy)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the above ingredients together till smooth, then add 1 cup soy milk,

1 cup corn meal, and 1/2 to 1 cup corn flour (or rice flour)

I put mine in a plastic container greased with olive oil and cook it for

about 3-5 minutes in the microwave, then cover it and store it in the refrigerator.

When I overcooked a batch, I lifted the cornbread, put 1/2 cup Imperial

Margarine and 1/4 cup brown sugar under it, and heated it in the microwave

for 1 minute. It was then soft and sweet, and I added peanut butter and jelly

to one piece and almost had a childhood favorite--peanut butter and jelly

sandwich.

:D Welda,

I'll definitely try it.

I have a recipe for Quick and Easy muffins and I have been eating them for quite a while. I take peanut butter and Jelly and smear it in the middle and it's wonderful.

Here it is if you want to try it.

1/4 c sugar

2 tb shortening

2 ea eggs

1 c rice flour

1/4 ts salt

2 ts baking powder

1/2 c milk, or non dairy liquid

1/4 ts vanilla

In the mixing bowl, cream together sugar and shortening. Then beat in the eggs. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder and add to the egg mixture alternately with the milk. Dont overbeat. Stir in the vanilla. These are best mixed by hand. Pour into greased muffin cups. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 min.

Variation: pour half the batter in the muffin tins and sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar over the batter. Cover with the remaining batter and sprinkle with more cinnamon and sugar.

They are great with just about anything you eat that you would like a little bit of bread with. I like to cover them with margarine or peanut butter and jelly. I'd say you could even use just the eggs yolks. you might have to add a couple more though.

Thanks

Lucy :D

Lucy, The next time you leave your rural area try to seek out an Oriental market. They have many of the flours, you'll need and they are usually cheap. I buy rice flour, sweet rice flour, tapioca flour, corn starch and several other flours at the Oriental supermarket. Every time I go I just stock up so I'll have a good supply. Many of these flours are really cheap, corn starch 59 cents a box. Rice flour 49 cents a bag. That market is a real lifesaver for the celiac. Shirley

:D Thanks a lot Shirley

I'll have to have my daughter check and see if there is one in her area. She lives just outside of Chattanooga in Alabama. She goes to the city all the time. Wow! those are some really great prices. DH just brought me home a bag of brown rice flour and it was 3.00 for a 1 1/2 lb bag. :angry:

Thanks again for the advice.

Lucy :D

Shirley (or anyone else), You stated you buy your flours at an Oriental market. Just wondering, do you still call the manufacturer to be sure they are not contaminated? I bought some corn flour at an Oriental store thinking it was perfectly fine, this voice in my head said to call before I used it. It was contaminated....Even things like corn meal, naturaly gluten-free but supplier says they are contaminated. Makes me so mad

Tracy, I've never purchased corn flour at an oriental market, but I have purchased other flours and never had a problem with them. Of course, there is always a possibility of contamination. But I always try the flour out a little at a time to see if it bothers me before I use it, because it is difficult to find an e-mail address for oriental foods--at least the ones from China and some other countries. And I've also had problems with foods who claim to be gluten free and flours from this country. So it's really a dice game about what foods are contaminated and what foods aren't. Just take it slow, if you try it so you don't get to sick. Shirley

I am not a cook but i tackled this corn bread recipe and it was better than Jiffy.

Anyone else have a good bread recipe for my bread machine?

I have been gluten-free for 8 days and thought I had no symptoms except anemia (which is common in women my age).

Suddenly i'm sleeping through the night and my skin is not translucent.

It turns out there were suttle symptoms. also I have been drinking crown royal the company assures it is gluten free. :)

Hi All!

I just wanted to add my 2 cents about the Asian market, I LOVE EM! I haven't bought Bob's Red Mill or Arrowhead Mills since I discovered the Asian Rice flour. I use it for everything and it's so smooth, so if you have noticed that a lot of the other flours have the gritty texture, try the Asian fours. They are usually sold in a 1# bag for anywhere from 50cents to a buck, either way, it's good stuff for cheap!

Celiac Free Man,

Which of the recipes did you try? I'm searching through this category, and there are tons of great sounding cornbread recipes, and I just don't know which to try. If you liked the one you tried, that would be a start for me.

Also, There are several categories in which Jenni posted a recipe (that looks wonderful) for a bread machine bread with onion and cheese.

Take Care,

Fil

Hi jhmom/Stacie. I tried the cornbread recipe you mentioned. It's a little heavy, but not only delicious, it's knife- and spreading-friendly. It keeps shape and never crumbles. I'd been keeping it on the lower shelf of my fridge for about two weeks, and it still was fine. To freshen it up I put it in the toaster (for about 4 to 6 min) oven or microwave (for 5 to 10 sec). The only thing I would change next time is the amout of sugar - that's in case I'll plan to use it with soups, meats, or cheese. And with marmalads, tea or coffee, and likes - it's just great. Thank you very much.

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
