Gluten/Dairy Free Sweet Honey Mini Cornbread Loafs

Gluten/Dairy Free Sweet Honey Mini Cornbread Loafs



  •  1 box of Glutino Yankee Cornbread Mix
  • 1/2 cup of Sweet corn ( frozen or can)
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoon  of nondairy butter-spread/melted (Nutivia)
  • 2 tablespoon of Raw Honey – (1 tbsp add to Mix & 1 tbsp add to melted nondairy butter-spread (shortening) to brush on top of cornbread after baking)
  • 1-1/3 cup of non-dairy milk (I’m using Silk Cashew Milk)
  • 1 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar ( to mix in non-dairy milk for substitution for buttermilk)
****You will need a Mini loaf Pan (makes 8 mini loafs) ****


Preheat oven  425 °F.  Spray your mini loaf pan with a non-stick spray and set aside.
I mixed all the ingredients into my Vitamix ( however you can use a hand or stand mixer or even a wire whisk in a Large mixing bowl.) I started first mixing the Apple Cider Vinegar into the Non-dairy milk and set aside.Next I place the  1/2 cup  sweet corn, honey  with 1/2 cup of the ACV and non-dairy milk mixture to cream .
Next I add the egg ,remaining ACV and non-dairy milk mixture,  and the Glutino Yankee Cornbread Mix then  blend until all is well combined. Lastly stir in the cooled melted butter-spread.  Pour the  batter into the mini loaf pan and bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  I then make a honey non-butter blend mixture -melted and brush each cornbread loaf right as they are Hot out of the oven. Place on a wire rack to cool .


**** Product review ****
Glutino Yankee Cornbread Mix  was perfect in this recipe.
My family enjoyed these Gluten/Dairy free Mini Cornbread with our Chili dinner !
