Apple Corn Bread

Apple corn bread Annie Taylor Chen from Vegan AnnCompared with traditional bread, this corn bread is closer to cake. However, it’s not the type of cake you bake for special occasions, but a quick bread type of cake that you bake for teatime, afternoon snack, or breakfast. Unlike traditional corn bread, which tends to be a bit crumbly, I use syrup and apple juice to give it a fruity fragrance and extra moisture. This results in a perfect teatime cake with a brownie-like texture, which I happily enjoy with a glass of golden apple juice. Contributed by Annie Taylor Chen, Vegan Ann.
