STEP 1: Combine the dry ingredients (cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and brown sugar) in a large bowl and stir well.

STEP 6: Allow the cornbread to slightly cool before slicing and serving. Serve with butter or maple syrup. Enjoy!

RECIPE NOTES:

  • If you want you could substitute the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour. The cornbread will be a bit more crumply this way, but it will still be super delicious.
  • I added one cup of corn kernels to the batter because I think it gives the cornbread a nice crunch and flavor. But if you want plain cornbread, just leave it out. You don’t have to change anything else when leaving it out. 
  • My vegan cornbread is sweet, but not overly sweet. But if you’re not into sweet cornbread, just lower the amount of sugar to have a more savory version. 

VEGAN CORNBREAD – FAQS:

CAN I FREEZE VEGAN CORNBREAD? 

Yes, freezing this cornbread works really well. I like to make a bigger batch and freeze it for later to have it with chili or stew.

After baking, make sure to let the cornbread cool down completely. Then just put it in freezer bags or in a freezer container. You can freeze it for up to 3 months. 

When you’re ready to eat it, just thaw it in the fridge overnight. Then bake it at 300 °F for about 10-12 minutes.

WHAT IS CORNMEAL?

Some people get a bit confused when it comes to cornmeal and I totally get that. Is it the same as cornstarch or polenta? 

No, cornmeal is not the same. It consists of dried and ground corn. You can usually find it in the baking aisle of your supermarket.
