3. In bowl, combine dry ingredients (corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt). Mix in nondairy milk, oil, and then egg replacer; mix well.
4. Pour batter into greased baking pan. (I use a medium cast iron skillet for my vegan cornbread and cakes, but be creative)

mmmm this was perfect with the chili i made. i actually thought it was a tad too sweet but thats easy to fix next time. i loved the texture and how moist it was and it was super easy!


just like everyone else I really liked this recipe the only thing I did differently was used whole wheat flour. With a little homemade chilli and this was perfect for this cold winter weather!


This is a delicious recipe! So moist and flavourful. I used spelt flour as I do not eat white or whole wheat flour and it was great. As a new vegan, I am excited when I find an easy yummy recipes like this :-*


This was fabulous.  Recipes like this remind me that I CAN be vegan and make me feel so much more in touch with the food I eat.  Who needs the processed sugary crap anyway?  This was far better! It became even more moist the next day and, so far, has lasted 3 days without the need for refrigeration.  I may go have the final slice now!  Fit perfectly into a glass pie plate.


I used flax also.. It was OK...
Mine came out rather thick, I prefer a fluffier cornbread but my family liked it.


;)b  I made this for Thanksgiving and it was scarfed up. I used flax eggs instead of Ener-g eggs. I also didn't want to use white flour so I used whole wheat pastry flour instead. It was DIVINE!!!!!!


Yet another fan!  I needed something to pair up with chili and this worked great!  I added some corn kernels and crushed red pepper to the batter.  It's hard not to have seconds! 


I think this is the first vegan cornbread that has turned out for me.  It is savory ;)b


I had a bit of trouble with this recipe, but they still turned out alright...

I followed the recipe exactly, aside from reducing the sugar to 1/4 cup and using Bob's Red Mill egg replacer (I think it's pretty much the same as EnRG). The batter was really, really thin! I didn't think that using only half of the sugar would do that....Is the batter supposed to be like a barely-thick liquid?

I was afraid they wouldn't bake well with such a runny batter, so I added another 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 - 1/3ish cup of was still more runny than the cornbread batter I remember from my childhood, but I didn't want to alter it too much, so stopped there. The batter filled 12 muffin cups and baked at 375* for about 27 minutes.

They were a lot sweeter than I usually like, but I still managed to eat three of them within a few hours of baking....good texture, not too dense, and nice peaked tops that were just slightly crisped. I'll probably keep this recipe around when I want a slightly-sweet dessert muffin AND the slight grittiness of cornmeal.


This is excellent corn bread... goes perfect with chili. 

Thanks! :)>>>
