Golden Cornbread

I promised several people I would post this picture along with the final recipe...so here it is.

I weighed and measured all the ingredients because I have a habit of throwing stuff together and guessing about the amounts. This way I know for sure what I put in it.

This is a 10-inch by 3-inch cast iron skillet...you can get 12 normal size slices out of it or 8 Mongo size slices. I don't know the carb count...I was hoping that someone who knows how to figure these would do that.

Golden Corn Bread

2 cups-(8ounces) almond flour
1/2 cup-(2ounces) oat flour
2/3 cup-(3-1/2ounces) popcorn meal
1/3 cup Splenda
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 cup…homemade LC milk

Put a cast iron skillet into the oven and preheat the oven and the skillet to 425°

Mix the dry ingredients together, make a well in the middle. Add oil, eggs, and milk in the well and mix with a wire whisk. Allow to stand for 5 minutes to give the ingredients time to hydrate.

Take the hot skillet out of the oven and place it on the stove over high heat. Put just enough oil in the skillet to swish it around good and heat the oil. Pour the batter into the hot pan and place it in the oven and bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

It tastes as good or better than it looks...it's better than the high carb cornbread I used to make. DH likes it much better as well.

Good question about the homemade LC Milk...

My question is where are you getting your popcorn meal ...or are you simply grinding popcorn yourself?

CL, it looks good, and I too would like to know what the net carb count will be for a Mongo piece, because that is the size my DH will want, I am sure. I will save this one for a special treat to eat on Thanksgiving or something (for traditional purposes).

Yes, you can grind popcorn in a VitaMix blender or you can use a coffee grinder. I tried it in a coffee grinder today and I had to grind it 4 times to get it ground into a meal.

3 tablespoons of popcorn has 25 carbs and 5 grams of fiber.
3 tablespoons of popcorn will make 1/3 cup of meal.

This might be a silly question, but is the popcorn popped or raw for the popcorn meal?

My reaction to this picture reminded me of another thread here talking about being a "natural" or "reluctant" low-carber--I saw that sausage and thought that it looks SOOOO incredibly delicious! In fact, my mouth is watering. Forget the chili and cornbread--give me the spiced meat mixed with fat! :blush:

Yeah, I have about 30lbs of corn meal in our storage and it's hard integrating it into the family's diet since I made a lot of corn bread before and, surprise, surprise, I was the one who ate most of it.

It looks great! I love it with a good soup or stew or I like to make chili with cornbread baked on top, mmmmmm!

According to ******...

Regular cornmeal ...1/3 cup is 41.5 carbs and 2.1grams of fiber

According to the bag it comes in...Great Value Popcorn is

3 tablespoons of popcorn has 25 carbs and 5 grams of fiber.
3 tablespoons of popcorn will make 1/3 cup of meal.

They breed modern day corn to have excessive amounts of starch in it. Then when they grind it they remove the bran and the germ leaving mostly starch…starch has a very long shelf life.

So by adding vitamins back into the starch they take out of corn and wheat the modern world doesn’t die of malnutrition but they get very fat.

There is no commercial use for messing around with popcorn so it’s pretty much left alone…then when you grind it yourself you get the bran and the germ. Along with a lot of fiber you also get the vitamins that naturally occur in the grain.

I put the ingredients of the cornbread into ****** and this is what I got.
How accurate this is depends on how accurate ****** is.

Carbs 137
Fiber -41
Total 96 usable carbs for the whole bread

96 divided by 12 servings = 8 carbs per serving
96 divided by 8 servings = 12 carbs per serving

I made this last night, this is really, really good cornbread!!!

I ground my popcorn in my coffee grinder, it took a little while but I eventually got a pretty decient grind. I'm going to splerge and get a better coffee grinder so I can grind more that 3 tablespoons of popcorn at a time.

We ate half the bread last night with our dinner. I have some really beautiful split chicken breasts in my frig, I'm going to make some cornbread dressing to go with them with the other half of the cornbread for supper tonight. DH is going to be one happy camper tonight.

Thanks so much for this recipe!!!

I was at WM last night looking at the different corn meals. Some do have as high as 43 carbs/ 1/4 cup. Some of the stone ground type had only 20 c/ 1/4 c. All had 2 g of fiber. I do not have a vita mix or intend to get one at this point. At least there are some less carb corn meal out there.

I would recommend getting a cast iron skillet...it is something you will use your whole life and pass down to your children and they will treasure it. The older they are the better they get. This particular skillet is one I inherited from my Grandmother on my Father's side. It is so well seasoned it has a finish that looks like black glass on the inside...I treasure this skillet. Making cornbread in a cast iron skillet is a good way to season one.

Preheat your oven with the skillet inside the oven and when the skillet is really hot pour about 3 tablespoons of oil into the skillet..swish it around and pour your cornbread batter into the oil. The batter will start to fry on the bottom...this is what gives you that fabulous brown crispy crust...then put the skillet back in the oven to bake your bread.

Then clean your skillet by wiping it out with a paper towel...never wash it. Over time it will turn a beautiful deep shinny black.

No I've never made cracklin-bread...I'm not really all that wild about cracklins...and I don't like using bacon grease in my cornbread because to me it just covers up the cornbread flavor that I love so much. I guess I'm what you would call a purest when it comes to my beloved cornbread.

When a carb count is given for any food the fiber is lumped in with the carbs.

When we are figuring out how many carbs we are going to get from eating a serving of this food we subtract the fiber from the total number of carbs because we can't digest fiber... so those fiber carbs don't count because our bodies can't absorb them.

You can grind popcorn in a coffee grinder...I did an experiment and ground some popcorn in my cheap little coffee grinder that I got at Walmart for $10.00. It took a bit of grinding but it does work.
