Delicious maple brown butter cornbread is a play on traditional sweet cornbread that is perfect for Thanksgiving.



  • 2 cups cornmeal*
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour**
  • 1 1/2 tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup of butter (12 tbs)
  • 2 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together and then set aside.
  3. Cook butter in the skillet you intend to bake the cornbread in over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Let it melt, then cook another 2 minutes or so until the butter gives off a nutty aroma and turns a golden brown color, which you can check on a spoon. Pour butter into dry ingredients.
  4. Add eggs, milk, and syrup. Stir until batter is well combined. Pour batter into skillet.
  5. Bake 18-21 minutes or until center comes out clean.
