    Jalapeño Cornbread (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    The finished jalapeño cornbread. Photo: JeffreyWI’m always looking for different ways to use jalapeños or other peppers in dishes you expect to find them. I like using coarse, stone ground cornmeal in any cornbread recipe and gluten-free flour actually gives the bread really interesting flavor. This recipe is buttery and delicious and has a great chewy texture.

    Ingredients:
    1½ cups stone ground yellow cornmeal
    1 cup gluten-free flour ( I use Bob’s Red Mill or Authentic Foods, but feel free to use your favorite)
    3 tablespoons seeded and chopped jalapeños, about 1-2 peppers
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ cup sugar
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    2 sticks butter, melted
    1¼ cups buttermilk

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 400°F and brush a 10-inch square baking dish with butter.

    In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and butter. Slowly add wet mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until lumps dissolve but do not over-mix. Let batter sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.

    Pour batter into pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving.

    I made two changes to this recipe. I don't like jalapenos, so I used a can of creamed corn. Also, I only had 1 stick of butter, not 2. It came out the best tasting cornbread I have ever made!! My husband has been eating gluten free with e, and said I needed to save this recipe. Some day when my boys are coming over I will make it with the jalapenos. Jefferson, I will be looking for more recipes by you. This was fantastic!!!

    Curious? This is the first time I see a quick bread recipe stating to allow batter to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Please tell me the science behind this step. I am looking forward with mouth watering delight to making your recipe.

    Followed the recipe and used 1 stick of butter instead of 2. It turned out very nicely. Next time I'll use 3 peppers.
