Vegan Cornbread

Vegan cornbread from Happy Herbivore

This is my favorite cornbread recipe. It’s quick and simple—the kind of recipe you can whip up at any time because you always have the ingredients on hand. Recipe contributed by Lindsay S. Nixon, from The Happy Herbivore Cookbook.*

Serves: 6

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 cup nondairy milk (such as fat-free soymilk)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 400º F.

Whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. Add non-dairy milk, applesauce, maple syrup and sugar, if using, on top. Using a spatula, stir until just combined.

Pour batter into a nonstick shallow 9″ pie dish, or other oven-safe dish. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    Marie Callender’s organic cornbread is to die for…. I’ve used this mix for several years and everyone in my family loves it!! Now, it’s sort of a tradition for me and the little ones to have weekly baking sessions with MC’s cornbreads and muffins. You should visit their website today to purchase your mixes. I’m sure you will enjoy the great taste!
