Servings: Makes approximately 9 servings
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup all-purpose flour (or substitute with gluten-free flour for a GF version)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other plant-based milk)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup melted vegan butter (or coconut oil)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease an 8×8-inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients until well mixed.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened applesauce, melted vegan butter (or coconut oil), and apple cider vinegar until fully combined.
- Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet mixture into the well.
- Gently stir the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; some lumps are fine.
- Pour the cornbread batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
- Bake the vegan cornbread in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Once baked, remove the cornbread from the oven and let it cool in the baking dish for a few minutes.
- Carefully transfer the cornbread to a wire rack to cool further before slicing and serving.
