Soft & Buttery Vegan Cornbread Loaf


It’s no secret that I love cornbread, but I realized I have never posted a recipe for cornbread made in a loaf pan! You definitely need this Soft & Buttery Vegan Cornbread Loaf in your life. It’s perfect to serve with a smoky pumpkin chilli, fall soups, stews or just for snacking!

Cornbread is one of those things I never really got around to trying before I went vegan. But after making it myself, I can’t believe I hadn’t ever wanted to try it. This cornbread is pillow-soft, moist, the perfect amount of crumbly, buttery and slightly sweet. Truly all the best things in one little loaf! This is one of those recipes that I come back to every fall. The crisp air and chilly nights make me crave something a bit more dense and comforting than regular bread. Don’t get me wrong, I do love fresh baked bread but there’s something about cornbread in the fall. Magical!

Soft & Buttery Vegan Cornbread Loaf

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf


Fluffy, moist and buttery soft vegan cornbread, perfect for dipping in chilli or serving with fall soups!


  • 1 cup non-dairy milk + 1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted vegan butter
  • 1 tbsp egg replacer (or chia seeds/ground flax seeds) + 3 tbsp water
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (or buckwheat flour if you’re gluten-free)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C. Line a 5″x9″ loaf pan with parchment paper or grease it.
  2. Stir together the non-dairy milk and vinegar. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt. Whisk until combined.
  4. Add melted vegan butter, vegan egg, and non-dairy milk mixture. Stir until it becomes a batter.
  5. Pour into prepared loaf tin and bake approx 25 minutes, until cracked on top and edges are slightly golden brown. You can insert a toothpick in the center and remove it- if it comes out clean or with a few crumbs clinging, its done. If it comes out with wet batter, bake a few more minutes.
  6. Let cool about 15 minutes in the pan before attempting to remove and slice. Serve with butter. Enjoy!

  1. This looks absolutely amazing! Can it be made into cornbread muffins, and for how long do you think they should bake for?

  2. I made this last night and it was AMAZING!! My kids devoured it! Thanks Liv for another awesome recipe!!

  3. This was amazing! Super moist. I sprinkled some sugar on top after slathering it in some earth balance butter. My non vegan family members really loved it!
