How do you make vegan cornbread?
To start, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Then, make this dairy free cornbread, you are going to start by combining your apple cider vinegar and dairy free milk to make a vegan buttermilk. You do this by adding the vinegar to a measuring cup and filling the remaining with dairy free milk. Then, let sit for 10 minutes.
While you wait, grease a 9×9 pan.
Mix all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Give a stir with a spatula.
Then, add in all your wet ingredients, including the vegan buttermilk when ready.
Pour the batter into your greased pan and cook for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

This cornbread was SO good! Like others, I’m gonna make it again and again. Thanks for a truly delicious complement to my pinto beans. You guys rock!
So glad to hear!
First of all even if I wasn’t vegan I would smash this cornbread! I have never made homemade cornbread but this recipe is not only easy but straight forward and delicious. All of the ingredients I had on hand so that was great. A nice sweet touch but not overpowering and so moist. I did everything to the T so I had no issues. Thank y’all! I’m so grateful to have found y’all on my journey.
haha, i love it! So glad you enjoyed
Oh. My. God. I didn’t know cornbread could be bouncy and pillowy. This was phenomenal. Seriously the best cornbread I’ve ever had, it’s absolutely my go to recipe now. You guys are amazing at what you do!
So happy to hear that you loved the recipe so much!
Made as muffins. Came out perfectly and as described. Delicious on their own. Just the right amount of sweetness. Pillow soft and oh so yummy right out the oven! Will definitely be making this recipe again 😋
So happy to hear that you loved them!
Made this recipe for Thanksgiving as the only bread option. It was moist and sweet like I like it. My husband and son are not plant based and they also enjoyed it. Will definitely make it again!
So happy to hear that everyone enjoyed it
Oh my gosh I have been wasting my time and corn flour on other recipes because this is the ONE. I’ll never stray from this recipe.
So glad that you enjoyed it!
I double checked and did exactly as the recipe said but my bread is not cooking through…. Besides that it tastes good but Idk why no one else seems to have that issue, otherwise id recommend changing the amount of liquid to 1 cup. Also I want to add: I’m not american so having something corn/dinner related so sweet is totally new to my taste buds
Sorry to hear that it didn’t work for you. Are you used to converting to cups? I only ask b/c you say you aren’t American and hope to troubleshoot the issue
This was one of the first vegan alternative recipes I tried after deciding to go plant based and WAAAOOOWWWW! This is the best cornbread I’ve ever had, vegan or not. I will never in my LIFE go back to a jiffy or a boxed cornbread lol. Thanks! Love you guys!
