Keto cornbread

In this blog I demonstrate how toprepare a delicious keto or low carb cornbread or mealie bread recipe. Over the last few months we have experimented with modifying the traditional southern cornbread and the South African mealie bread recipes for a keto diet. After many flops we have come up with this perfect recipe. Vinegar and cream are the secret, low carb, substitute for traditional buttermilk. This cornbread or mealie bread is delicious, has great texture, good consistency, beautifully moist, it keeps well and makes very tasty toast. From a keto or low carb point of view it only has 2.5 grams of carbs per slice and 180 calories per slice.


1 egg

150mls cream

25 mls mls water

50 mls bacon fat/lard melted

5 mls cider vinegar

50 grams corn meal

90 grams almond meal

1.5 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

5mls psyllium husk
