Grain-free “Corn Bread”

Grain Free Pound Cake #glutenfree #grainfree

I love bread. I really do. But it doesn’t like me and frankly I have read enough about the potential damage to our bodies from gluten that I very rarely indulge.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss the taste of bread.

The texture of it.

Slathering a thick, warm slice of it with butter and watching it melt as I take a bite.

The emotionally satisfying feeling I get as it fills my belly.

I clearly have this whole bread thing under control….

It helps to have an alternative.

It’s not quite the same as a warm and flaky loaf of Italian or sourdough bread, but it will certainly distract me enough to think I am eating corn bread with my chili.

The texture of this bread is similar to pound cake, which I usually find to be true of grain-free based breads but the applesauce adds a moistness and lightness that makes it much more palatable. If you want to forgo the honey, you can simply use 4 tbsp of applesauce. It might not be quite as sweet, however. I have found that the more honey, the sweeter it is.

And my brain is fooled, at least for a little while.
