The honey and yogurt make this gluten free flourless cornbread irresistibly moist. The no-refined-sugar and gluten free parts are almost an after thought. You can also make it dairy and egg free or vegan with just a few simple substitutions.
This is a Grandma inspired recipe, though hers was neither gluten free nor flourless. She used to call it johnnycake which I never really understood. She served it with maple syrup as a snack or for breakfast and I was always excited when Grandma told me she had johnnycake.
Cornbread has made a bit of a revival of late especially with the popularity of TexMex themed restaurants and restaurants of all types looking for a bread substitute for their gluten free diners.
I made my gluten free cornbread flourless so you could whip up quickly for breakfast or to serve on the side in place of a dinner roll.
Of course it's amazing on it's own as a snack with maple syrup like Grandma served it or jazzed up with some bacon and a nice fruit compote.
Just one simple substitute will make this gluten free flourless cornbread also dairy free. Just use your favorite dairy free yogurt. You can also make a dairy free sour milk by adding a tablespoonful of lemon juice to 1 1/2 cups of canned coconut milk. I've made it both ways and they are both delicious although I think the yogurt method is a bit more moist.
I make this all the time with a flax egg and it turns out perfectly!
Substitute the yogurt and egg as above and substitute the honey for the same amount of corn syrup or agave syrup and presto, your gluten free flourless cornbread is now vegan. You probably won't be able to tell the difference.
