  Maya Angelou's recipe for cornbread comes together in just minutes.

recipe adapted from "Hallelujah! The Welcome Table: A Lifetime of Memories with Recipes" by Maya Angelou. Random House (October 9, 2007)

Prep Time:10 minutes Cook time:about 18 minutes Total time:about 30 hour


2 cups gluten-free cornmeal
1/2 cup white rice flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon table salt
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 stick butter, melted (original recipe calls for 1/4 stick of butter. But I found that 1/2 stick works really well.)
1/2 pound crisp cracklings, broken into 1/2-inch pieces, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Or spray a 8x8x2-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix dry ingredients; stir in milk and eggs. Pour in butter, and add cracklings. Stir. Pour mixture into pan and bake until set, about twenty minutes.
