Easy Made from Scratch Sweet Cornbread


Sweet Vegan Cornbread

“You gone eat yo cornbread?”  Haha, it takes a special kind of person to start their blog post with a line from the iconic move, Life. But when I tell you this is one of “the” best cornbread recipes I’ve come across, vegan or otherwise. I might just have done what Eddie Murphy’s character did in the movie too. This cornbread is sweet, moist and just plain awesome. I found it awhile back on “Vegan Cooking with Love” .  I’ve since made it on several occasion to accompany  chili, greens,  or soups.

What I did differently…

  • I used 3/4 cup of rice milk & 1/4 cup water. Not trying to be fancy, just ran out of milk.
  • I used flax seed as an egg replacer. Which is why there are are brown flecks adding a bit of character to my cornbread. To make you need 1 tbsp of ground flax seed mixed with 3 tbsp of water. Allow to sit for at 15 minutes or until gloppy. Gloppy is not typically something you want to hear in cooking, but in this instance it’s a good thing.
  • Of course what drive this home, is the cast iron skillet. They can be hard to find but they seem to be making a resurgence. I’m starting to see them more in mainstream stores. You can also find them online here.

Note: Mix well to avoid batter becoming mealy.
