Thursday GF Dutch Oven Cornbread

Just a couple of days ago on Tasty Tuesdays! GF Dutch Oven Chili, I made a favorite homestyle meal that most everyone loves.  Honestly I didn't think such a simple dish would get that much attention......That's what I get for thinking!  Thank you to all who visited the page and commented.  It is one of our favorite dishes and maybe a new twist on the preparation for many of you.

I personally can't have chili without cornbread (is there such a thing??) so I cooked the cornbread alongside the chili but made you wait to see the end results.   Dutch Oven cornbread is for lack of a better word, indescribable....  It has all the same ingredients but somehow, some way, it tastes completely different.  Since I've made you wait long enough already, I won't spend any more time telling you how it tastes and we'll just get to the good part.  The ingredients are as follows:

1 small bag charcoal (You will need about 20-22 pieces)
1- Dutch Oven 10"
1-GF Cornbread Mix (I will make something from scratch soon...:)
2 - Large eggs
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1.5 cups milk

Place mix in large mixing bowl.

Add vegetable oil and eggs

Add milk and mix with an electric mixer for 2 minutes on low speed scraping sides of the bowl as needed. 

Mix on high speed for 30 seconds.

Mixture will be uniform but slightly stiff.

Grease bottom and sides of your Dutch Oven with nonstick spray or oil.

Put batter in oven and place approx 8 coals on the bottom and 12 coals on top.

Bake 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

Starting to rise.......

Almost ready.......

Adding some heat here to brown the top.....

Oh yes!!

This cornbread was very hearty and good.  As you can see from the pictures it didn't last long.  I barely had to time to snap a few pics before it was all gone.  I am going camping this weekend for 3-4 days and will take a lot of pictures of the campfire cooking and good times in / around the water.  Tasty Tuesdays! will still be posted and my dedicated staff (staff...haha!) will be moderating comments so give us a lot of them.....Enjoy!!
