  • cooking spray

  • 1 cup stone ground cornmeal

  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour (such as Tom Sawyer®)

  • cup white sugar, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 cup 1% milk

  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Mix cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum together in a bowl. Cut in butter with 2 knives until reduced to pea-sized pieces.

  3. Whisk milk and egg together in a bowl; stir into the cornmeal mixture until just combined. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until top is light brown, about 22 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If desired, 1/4 cup egg substitute can be used instead of the egg.

A 9-inch baking pan can be substituted for the 8-inch.
