  • ¾ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 ¼ cup 1 to 1 gluten-free flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup plus two tablespoons melted butter or ghee, divided


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • Place the cornmeal, 1 to 1 gluten-free flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and sea salt into a medium sized bowl, and stir well to combine, using a whisk or fork.
  • Combine the egg, milk and ¼ cup of the melted (and cooled) butter in a separate bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  • Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter or ghee in a 10”cast iron over medium heat. Once melted and hot, pour the batter into the cast iron and cook on the stovetop for one minute.
  • Place the cast iron into your oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Be careful not to overcook the cornbread, as this will cause it to dry out. ENJOY!
