Gluten free pumpkin cornbread is totally new to me. We loved it so much, it will become a regular on our menu.
Recently, we found out that Big has Hashitoxicosis. That is a crazy mix between high and low thyroid. At times her thyroid functions normally but then it decided to take a little vacation and go south to slow down or north to get hyped up.
Because of her thyroid issue, I am working hard to get gluten out of our diets. We are doing it in baby steps.
We are eating more clean foods and real foods and that has made a difference in our health. Now that I have Big on board the no processed foods train, I am slowly moving her to gluten free.
Shh…. don’t tell her this cornbread is gluten free. I don’t think she knew it when she devoured it. I certainly won’t tell her. I am sure your family will never know when you make it for them either!
These are super simple answers to a couple of questions you may have. There are many, many resources out there that can explain it better than I can. There are also many bloggers who focus on gluten free.
What is gluten:
- Gluten is a protein composite found in several types of grains, including wheat, spelt, rye and barley.
- Gluten consists of two proteins – gliadin and glutenin. It is the gliadin that people react negatively to.
Why gluten free?
- When gluten reaches the digestive tract and is exposed to the cells of the immune system, they mistakenly believe that it is coming from some sort of foreign invader, like a bacteria.
- In certain people who are sensitive to gluten, this causes the immune system to mount an attack against it.
How do I make Gluten Free Pumpkin Cornbread?
Gluten Free Pumpkin Cornbread
- 1 packages Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Cornbread Mix
- 1 1/2 cups of whole milk
- 1 egg
- 1 cup canned organic pumpkin
- 1/2 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 375 F
Grease a large pie pan with butter, set aside
Place cornbread mix in a large bowl. Add milk, egg, pumpkin and butter. Mix until well blended. Then mix vigorously for about 30 seconds more.
Pour batter into prepared pie pan. Bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. Test with a toothpick - when it comes out clean, the cornbread is ready.
