  • Air fryer


  • ½ cup Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour or All Purpose Flour
  • ¾ cup Cornmeal gluten-free
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
  • ½ cup Buttermilk
  • ¼ cup Butter melted


  • Lightly brush a 6-inch round cake pan with butter and set aside.
  • Mix gluten-free flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and granulated sugar until smooth.
  • Add buttermilk and melted butter to the sugar mixture. Mix until combined.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir.
  • Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Place the baking pan in the air fryer. Cook at 330F Bake for 20-22 minutes, until the cornbread is cooked through and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Carefully remove from the cake pan onto a cutting board. Slice in 6 pieces.
  • Top with butter and honey and serve warm.



  • If your gluten-free flour blend does not already contain xanthan gum, add ¼ teaspoon to this recipe. I used Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour (blue bag) that already contains xanthan gum for this recipe.
  • If you do not have buttermilk, you can combine ½ cup of whole milk with a teaspoon of vinegar and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • If you would like to make this recipe dairy-free, you can use an unsweetened non-dairy milk of your choosing and dairy-free butter.
