Blue Corn Cornbread

"Corn bread made with blue cornmeal and more of almost every ingredient you would put in regular corn bread. It is almost cakelike. This is a pot luck winner."

This recipe is delicious~ I am wheat, gluten, and cow dairy sensitive so I made a few modifications. 1. Substituted rice flour for AP 2. Substituted 1 1/8 C coconut milk for cow milk 3. Substituted 1/2 C applesauce for the butter 4. Added 1/4 cup dried fruit (blueberries and cranberries) 5. Subtstituted 1/4 C Agave nectar for the sugar I cooked it for 30 minutes and it came out perfect. It retained the cakelike texture and was moist and absolutely scrumptious. Yum!


This recipe is fantastic! The blue cornmeal definitely adds a subtle, natural sweetness to the bread. The ingredients, proportions, and cooking directions are seamless- the cornbread turned out amazing. This recipe has since become my permanent cornbread recipe.


AMAZING. Simply AMAZING. Please note that I did not use blue cornmeal because I only had yellow on hand. ALSO I ran out of baking powder 1 tsp shy of 5 (didn't matter). AND (because capital letters tell you important things) I was also out of milk and had to substitute 1/2 c sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 c water instead (I went a light on the sugar to even it out). And the sifting 3 times, melting the butter in the oven in the dish and then pouring it in seemed so strange to me. But I did as instructed anyhow. And the result was.... The bread cooked for 30 minutes, came out perfect. It's perfection. Clearly with all the substitutions I had to make, and it still tastes wonderful, you just can't screw this bread up. This is my permanent recipe now. I will never go back.
