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!
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
Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C. Line a 5″x9″ loaf pan with parchment paper or grease it.
Stir together the non-dairy milk and vinegar. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt. Whisk until combined.
Add melted vegan butter, vegan egg, and non-dairy milk mixture. Stir until it becomes a batter.
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.
Let cool about 15 minutes in the pan before attempting to remove and slice. Serve with butter. Enjoy!
