      If you are unable to consume milk and the various kinds of alternative milks, you may use water. Keep in mind that using water will reduce the browning of your cornbread.

    I would like to use this instead of 1 box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix that a recipe calls for (among other things). Their package has 8.5 oz of mix and also calls for 1/3 cup of milk and 1 egg which yields 6-8 muffins. I imagine using the entire 3.5 cups from your package might yield more than I need in my BBQ Chicken Casserole. How should I adjust the ingredients for your cornbread mix for my recipe?
    Thanks so much!

      To prepare our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix for your BBQ Chicken Casserole, I recommend reducing our recipe by half. This will change the required ingredient amounts to:

      1-3/4 cups Gluten Free Cornbread Mix
      3/4 cups Milk (rice, soy, dairy)
      2-2/3 Tbsp Oil or melted butter
      1 egg

      This will yield approximately 8 servings.

    Can you please tell me if the cornbread mix can be made in a muffin tin? If so, what temp and for how long. Also, how many does it make.

    Thank you.

      Yes, you may prepare our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix in a muffin pan. To do so, you will bake the muffins at the listed temperature for 15 minutes. 1 package of our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix will yield 12 – 18 muffins.

    Hi,

    Can I mix it with my own hands, as I don’t have a mixer available? If so, do you have any specific instructions?
    I assume it won’t work with a blender as It’s usually sticky.

    Thanks

      Though our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix instructions call for a mixer, you may mix by hand. To do so, simply use a large spoon (preferably a wooden spoon) and stir to combine the ingredients completely.

    I’m trying to adapt this to a honey cornbread recipe that I make with all-purpose flour. My recipe calls for 1/2c. white sugar and 1/4c. honey. Will adding extra ingredients greatly affect the density of the muffin? If so, how can I remedy that?

      We have not tested this recipe with the use of added sugar and honey. However; when adding sugar and honey, you generally need to decrease the amount of liquid in the recipe. I recommend decreasing the amount of milk by 1/2 of cup. If you notice that the batter is too dry, you may add some of the milk back. The density of the muffins should not be significantly effected.

    I usually use buttermilk instead of milk when I make cornbread. Can I do that in this recipe and if so do I need to make any adjustments? Do you recommend it?

      Yes, you may choose to use buttermilk in place of the milk called for in this recipe. To do so, simply use the same amount of milk as you would buttermilk. I also recommend adding 1/2 tsp of baking soda to the dry ingredients.

      To prepare our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix at an elevation greater than 3000 feet, concentrate on increasing your oven temperature by 25ºF and be mindful not to over-mix or over-beat the eggs.

    I LOVE this mix – can I add kernel corn to this recipe? I’m thinking thawed & drained frozen corn or canned creamed corn. Please let me know what you think!
    Thank you so much.

      Though we have not tested this preparation, it is possible to add corn to our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix. If you are using thawed and drained frozen corn, simply add up to 1 cup without any adjustments needed. If you add creamed corn, use an 8 oz can and reduce the amount of milk by approximately 1/2 of cup. This addition may also require additional bake time.

      Yes, you may use our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix to prepared fried cornbread. Simply follow the recipe for mixing the cornbread batter and fry as per your recipe.

      We have not tested the use of creamed corn as a milk substitute. To add creamed corn, use an 8 oz can and reduce the amount of milk by approximately 1/2 of cup. You may add up to 3/4 cup of cheese without any adjustments to the base recipe. Keep in mind that you may need to increase the bake time.

    Hi, I appreciate the other questions about adding ingredients. I would like to add sour cream. How would I adjust the amount of milk? Thank you

      Sour cream can be used in place of milk in equal amounts. Instead of replacing the milk completely in this recipe, you may want to only replace half of the milk, using 3/4 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of sour cream.

      We have not tested this mix as a biscuit mix. Because of this, we do not have exact instructions on how to do so. If you choose to prepare our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix as a biscuit, you could try using the biscuit method (cutting fat into the dry ingredients and adding liquid) or you could try using a drop biscuit method by preparing the Basic Preparation Instructions and dropping the dough by the spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. I do find it important to note that this mix will produce a sticky dough. When working with it, be mindful of this quality and flour all prep surfaces.

    Hello! I already bought the mixture for cornbread and I will be making the muffins! I would like to know if the eggs can be substitute with flax eggs ( if so, what would be the ratio) as I need to make the vegan version.i would substitute the milk with almond milk.
    Thank you in advance!

      Hi Maya,
      Flax seed Meal (ground flax seeds- if you only have the whole seeds you can use a coffee grinder or similar to grind them into a coarse, flour-like consistency) can be used to replace an egg. 1 Egg equals 1 Tbsp Flax seed Meal mixed with 3 Tbsp water. Let sit 5 minutes and use as you would an egg in your recipe.

      Hi Basel,
      We haven’t tested this in a bread machine, but you should be able to bake this way. I would recommend using a “cake,” or a “quick bread”setting if your machine has one.

      Hi Atidir,
      You can use a 2-qt rectangular casserole dish but you may need to reduce the baking time a bit as the cornbread will be thinner. You can also bake in muffin tins for individual muffins.

      Hi William,
      Cornbread muffins can typically be frozen for up to three months. Just remove from freezer and let thaw at room temperature, and then re heat in the oven or the microwave as you prefer.

      Hi Carol,
      You should be able to use this product for cornbread, but our Corn Grits/Polenta is a medium grind so it will have more texture than using a Fine Grind Cornmeal or Corn Flour.
