This is the best corn bread I've ever made reminds me when I was in elementry and would always trade my milk for the corn bread...ill feel like a kid again. ;) thanks for posting.


Mmmmmmmmmmmh!! Yummy, yummy, yummy! Every cornbread recipe I've tried to make before this has turned out mediocre at best. THIS ONE IS AWESOME!!! I had to practice some serious self restrain to stop eating it & wait for the rest of my fam for dinner! THANK YOU!!

I was liberal with the sugar, and sloppy with measurements, and sprinkled some extra sugar on top. I don't have a cast-iron skillet yet, so I used my 8X8 square pan, and it was cooked perfectly after 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Perhaps a downfall of every other cornbread attempt of mine is that I overcook it. This time I wasn't taking the chance, and after probably less than 5 min out of the oven, I cooled the bread on a wire-rack just like any other cake.


(Oh yeah, and I didn't have a full cup of Rice-milk left, so I used some water & it still kills! I also used Canola Oil instead of Veggie.)  :)


This is perfect! Just the right amount of sweetness.


:agree?:  This was yummy!!  I used vanilla almond milk and whole wheat flour.  Turned out just the way corn bread should!  I made it with one of the black bean recipes from this site and I have enough for another meal!  ;)b  Thanks for a great recipe.  Will be making this again!


Wow! Fantastic recipe! This cornbread was so moist and delicious; a perfect accompaniment to chili. My mum took one bite and said, "This is some of the best cornbread I've ever had." We both love it so much! Thanks for sharing!


  I put jalapenos in mine and it was mighty tasty!! It's a great recipe on its own too!


Really moist and fluffy and so easy to make.
I made 1/4 of the recipe and made 3 muffins for my dinner with chili and served it with EB
I like this recipe better than the one in ppk and will definitely make it again  :)


Excellent.  One of the few recipes that calls for powdered egg replacer where I thought the end result was better than if I would have just left it out or used a little extra baking powder.


Everyone that I have served this cornbread to says that its the best cornbread that they have ever tasted! ;D


In my omni days, I loved cornbread like mad! My favorite recipe had 3 eggs in it, though, and I tried just replacing those with different egg replacers, and it's turned out not so delicious. So, I wanted to try a different cornbread recipe. I tried this one, and here are the changes I made to it: for the flour, I used 1/2 cup brown rice flour and 1/2 cup oat flour, I thought this was way too much sugar, so I cut it back to 2 T, for the oil I used 3 T melted butter, and I used 1/4 cup pureed silken tofu for the egg replacer (I don't have Ener-G). I thought this was absolutely delicious! I thought it was plenty sweet, and it had a nice airy quality. So delicious. However, it was pretty crumbly, and fell apart (which is fine, because we were having it with chili, and were going to crumble it anyway). I think next time, I might add a "flax egg" to it, in addition to the tofu, to get it to hold together a little better. Delicious, and will be making again!
