Gluten Free Cornbread madeleines or mini corn muffin Recipe
1/2 cup coarse gluten-free cornmeal grits (Arrowhead Mills or Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 cup gluten-free medium cornmeal (Bob’s Red Mill)
3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend (Rebecca reilly’s brown rice blend)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup lowfat buttermilk (for dairy free, milk sub with lemon juice)
1 large egg, beaten
2 tbsp. canola or olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
For all recipe:
1 madeleine pan, 1 mini muffin tin (use only half or 1/3 or tin)
Preheat oven to 375F.
Grease madeleine pan and 1/3 or 1/2 of mini muffin tin with butter or nonstick cooking spray.
Whisk together dry ingredients in med-large bowl and then make a well in the middle. Add your buttermilk, egg, and oil, and gently combine. Fill 2/3 of tins with the cornmeal batter.
Sprinkle 1/3 of batter in tins with grated parmesan. Sprinkle 1/3 of batter with generous amounts of coarsely ground lemon pepper. Add minced roasted red pepper to batter remaining in the bowl and use to fill remaining madeleine tins and mini muffin tins.
Season with kosher salt and bake for 9 or 10 minutes. If you like, you can turn over your madeleines and bake for two more minutes. Bake mini muffins a few more minutes too, if you like.
To serve, baste with lemon olive oil (optional) and sprinkle with a bit more kosher salt. Yummy!
