Gluten Free Cornbread Recipe

This month is all about delicious recipes and some are some great spice to them. I’m a huge fan of jalapeno peppers, so when I thought of recipes I wanted to try making a jalapeno and cheese corn bread. I don’t think they’re that spicy personally but add a nice amount of flavor to the corn bread. It’s a super easy recipe, gluten free and is a great side with chicken and the fixins!


  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Corn Oil
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, separated
  • 1 (8 ounce) Can cream-style corn
  • 1 large Onion, chopped
  • 2 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1 cup Cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup White Rice Flour
  • 1/4 cup Tapioca Starch
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, grease the inside of an 8 x 8 baking pan.
  2. In your mixer, beat your eggs until smooth. Add in your oil, buttermilk, 1 cup of cheese and creamed corn. Add in your peppers and onion.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together your dry ingredients. Slowly integrate into your wet mixture.
  4. Pour your batter into your prepared pan. Sprinkle the top with your remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  5. Cook for 35-45 minutes until a tester in the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool before slicing and serving.
