Is this recipe gluten free?
It depends on the type of white cornmeal mix you use.
You can substitute with cornmeal but it will be much more dense. I’d suggest a blend of 2 tablespoons of gluten free all purpose and 1 tablespoon of cornmeal for a lighter consistency.
Note, I haven’t tried this for this particular recipe, but in other like recipes!
Is this recipe really vegan?
I’ve use an oil to add the fat to this recipe instead of a traditional butter. If you prefer butter instead of oil, feel free to use that.
But, note doing so will negate the vegan designation of the recipe!
