- 1/4 cup shortening (use a non-hydrogenated shortening), plus more for greasing the pan
- 140 grams all-purpose gluten-free flour mix
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon psyllium husk
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk (you can use non-dairy milk, if you want)
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- Prepare to cook. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-9-by-2-inch pan.
- Mix the dry ingredients. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar, baking powder, psyllium husk and salt and stir.
- Cut in the shortening. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture the way you would when making pie dough. You should end up with walnut-size pieces in a sandy flour.
- Add the wet ingredients. Combine the eggs and milk in a small bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the liquid. Stir with a rubber spatula until everything is combined.
- Finish the batter. Stir in the cornmeal, whisking fast, until it is just combined. Do not overstir.
- Bake the cornbread. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the sides of the cornbread are slightly shrinking from the pan and a toothpick comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Pour all the flours into a large container. (Restaurant supply stores sell large plastic containers that fit this purpose well. You could also use a large glass jar.) Shake and shake and shake harder until all the flours have become one color.
