I’m always looking for traditional foods I can make when my mom comes over for dinner. She is on a very strict gluten-free, vegan diet so there are not a lot of options that are simple or cheap. This cornbread turned out a little dense but soft, kind of like the outside of a tamale with a semi-crisp crust. The whole family enjoyed it!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch cake pan.
Mix corn flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
Mix almond milk, oil, and maple syrup together in a small bowl. Fold into the corn flour mixture until batter is just moist. Spread mixture into the prepared cake pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
