Corn Bread Recipe with Homemade Cornmeal



I made homemade cornmeal from field corn a few weeks ago. Now, I want to give you my tasty cornbread recipe. This recipe is completely Gluten free.

Ingredients
1 3/4 cup homemade cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons melted butter (or bacon grease)

Directions
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a Bread Loaf Pan

In a small bowl combine cornmeal, baking powder, and salt and whisk well with a fork. In a medium sized bowl beat eggs and mix in honey, milk, and melted butter.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and place in oven.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until a knife or toothpick comes out clean when inserted into center of the bread. Allow to cool before cutting. Serve with lots of butter (obviously).

1. Take the corn off the cob
2. Grind the corn in a coffee grinder
3. Shift the ground corn through a screen.
