Corn Bread?

9 posts in this topic

Hello to all!!

Does anyone know if corn bread generally has wheat or gluten in it?? My son does not have problems with corn-just the wheat/gluten. I searched this topic on the forums and came up with nothing.My son loves corn bread and of course it goes great with hotdogs and beans:)Thanks a trillion!

Most corn bread recipes and/or mixes have a mixture of corn meal and flour. If you use a gluten-free flour, the cornbread will be gluten free.

Cornbread almost always has wheat flour in it. You can buy gluten-free cornbread mixes. Here's the recipe that I use which has no flour in it. It is moist and not too heavy. There are other recipes out there that have gluten-free flours in them. Check the bags of cornmeal for statements about shared equipment. I use Arrowhead Mills.

Put a little butter, oil or shortening in a small cast iron skillet and put it in the oven. Set the oven to preheat 400 degrees. Meanwhile, mix together 1c. cornmeal, 1 Tb. baking powder, 1/4 c. sugar(I prefer 2-3 Tb.),1 c. milk and 1 egg. Take the skillet out, pour in the batter and bake until set and just starts to brown an pull away from the edge of the pan. I don't remember the time, but it doesn't take long and is so easy that I make it fresh for breakfast.

I use Bob Mills brand corn mill mix. We love it. My 11 year old son swears it is better than any other kind of cornbread. I even use it to fix small pancake like bread to use like sandwich bread. It is the only type of bread I really like now that I'm gluten free.

I found a gluten-free corn bread mix by Bobs red Mill that is relly good. the rest of my family eats it too.

I always just use the recipe on the back of the bag- I think mine was Hogdson's mill. There is one w/ flour and one to be made w/o flour- it is more like old fashioned cornbread, not light and fluffy. I love it w/ some honey and butter.

I found a good cornbread recipe (and some other good gluten-free recipes) on a website for a very popular brand of butter (I don't want to get nailed for product pitching )

I just use the recipe on the back of the corn meal box--but I substitute BetterBatter gluten-free flour for the flour called for in the recipe.

YOu can also make ChiChi's Fiesta Sweet Corn Cake mix (sold at grocery stores in the Mexican section, and it's gluten-free!!!!)--it calls for adding a can of creamed corn (check labels to make sure it's gluten-free) and melted butter, and I throw in an egg, too.

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
