Gluten-Free Sage Cornbread

We call for yellow cornmeal here so that the shade can play off the green of the sage, but any type will work.

Comments on this Recipe

Made this last night not because it was gluten-free, but because I liked the sound of it. It was fantastic! I only baked it 25 minutes and that left the top a bit underbaked.

I have made this cornbread as the base of my Cajun andouille sausage and cornbread dressing for three years. It is fantastic! I use the gluten free AP flour instead of the mix suggested, and it still turns out well. I highly recommend it!
