Serves 1 loaf | Prep Time 10 mins | Cook Time 60 mins

Ingredients

¾ cup white rice flour
¾ cup brown rice flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tsp gluten free baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp fine Celtic sea salt
½ tsp xanthan
2 cups or 1 can plain organic canned pumpkin. 1 cup if using fresh mashed pumpkin.
1 cup soy milk or hemp milk
1 stick or ½ cup of soft unsalted organic butter or vegan margarine
3 organic eggs
3 Tbsp lemon juice
¾ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp allspice
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp ground ginger


Preheat your oven to 185C/350F


Sift the flours, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan, salt and spices together into a bowl, stir in the cornmeal and mix well.


In your mixer, cream the butter, add in the eggs and lemon juice, and mix until smooth.


Now gradually spoon in the pumpkin and milk, and mix slowly until evenly combined.


Keep the mixer running, and slowly pour in the dry ingredients, and combine until a smooth thick batter is achieved.


Pour into a well greased or lined square loaf tin, and bake for about an hour and a half, or until a skewer comes out clean.


After removing the bread from the oven, let it cool and settle in the tin for about 5 minutes.


Then pop it out onto a rack, and allow to cool further.

Notes

I modified my mother-in-law’s beloved cornbread recipe to create this. The pumpkin gives the gluten free-flours a moisture and spring, and the lemon juice and spices lifts the mix. My first go was a triumph, and I have not changed anything since. I like to serve this bread right out of the oven, and put almond butter or regular butter on it. This is when the texture is moist and springy, and most resembles regular wheat bread. For those gluten free desperates who will seize any opportunity to taste something resembling moist light bread - this is your moment! This cornbread is a fantastic snack; wonderful with a hearty soup; as a side accompaniment to a zesty salad; or as a sweet treat with a cup of herbal tea. It will keep for a few days in the fridge, but will get firmer and a little more dense like all gluten-free breads.
