Note: today when I baked this recipe I heated a 10 inch dutch oven in a 350 degree oven while I mixed the batter then I poured the mix into the pot. I baked it 20 minutes. It looks, no, tastes delicious.

I've overlooked posting this recipe because it's one of the easiest to pull together to bake, but it's such a great basic staple! It has it's origins as one of the very first GF recipes I ever collected.
Lorraine's Corn Bread
1 cup cornmeal (I grind popcorn (a whole grain!) always on hand in long term storage)
1 cup GF flour (any brand) (Lorraine used rice flour, I use Bette's Hagman's original mix, a ratio of 1 part rice flour, to 2/3 parts potato starch, to 1/3 part tapioca)
1 tsp xanthun or guar gum
4 Tbs sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 cup milk,
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs beaten
Mix up dry and wet ingredients separately. Stir the two together until combined. Pour into muffin tins and bake 10-12 minutes or into a 13 x 9 pan and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Lorraine, from Utah, with eight GF/CF children is my inspiration. In 1997, when this was all relatively new to me, this woman ground her own flour, made her own mixes and basically made me think I could really do this g-f thing.
Thanks, Lorraine. It's a keeper recipe, obviously because this post-it is still stuck to the inside of my cupboard, ten years, a move and many cupboard repaintings later.
