Gluten Free Hot Water Corn Bread


This recipe is very unique in that the bread is fried instead of baked. Enjoy!


  • 1 c. cornmeal, stone ground
  • ¾ c. boiling water
  • 1 Tbsp. organic shortening
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. sea salt


  1. Start by combining the cornmeal, salt and sugar. Slowly add the boiling water and mix well. Stir in the shortening until it melts into the batter.
  2. Pour canola oil to a depth of ½” in a skillet and place it on medium-high heat.
  3. Make flattened balls using the batter and fry in hot oil until crisp (only turn once) for about 5 minutes.
  4. Drain the corn breads on paper towels and serve hot with honey.
