Spoonbread -Gluten Free

Spoonbread is a moist cornmeal-based dish that is popular in Southern United States. It has the consistency of savory puddings or Yorkshire pudding. I decided to make this dish to compliment my BBQ Sparerib dinner for New Year’s Eve. It is extremely easy to make and because the recipe I used is not sweet, it went well with the strong sweet and spicy flavors of the ribs. I will definitely make this again!


2/3 cup of cornmeal

2 eggs, beaten

2 cups of milk (divided 1/2 and 1 1/2)

1 1/2 tablespoons of butter

1 teaspoon of salt

2 teaspoons of baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 450F and grease a 2 quart baking dish.
  2. Combine cornmeal, 1 1/2 cups of milk, butter and salt in a pot and cook on medium, stirring constantly. At first the mixture will be very liquid but after a while, it will thicken and fast.
  3. Whisk together eggs and 1/2 cup of milk and stir mixture into the cornmeal mixture. Mix well.
  4. Stir in baking powder and pour spoonbread into baking dish
  5. Bake for 25-35 minutes (golden brown)

Serve with some BBQ Ribs
