FOR SERVING optional


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF and lightly grease an 8 x 10" pan (20 x 25 cm), 8 x 8" (20 x 20 cm), or a 9-inch (23 cm) round cake pan.
  • Make the buttermilk. Measure out soy milk and add lemon juice. Set aside.
    1 ¼ cup unsweetened soy milk, 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Mix the dry ingredients.
    1 ¼ cups gluten-free flour, 1 cup yellow cornmeal, ½ cup organic sugar cane, ½ teaspoon baking soda, 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt
  • Add the wet ingredients. Stir until well combined.
    1 ¼ cup unsweetened soy milk, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, ⅓ cup vegan butter
  • Pour in a pan. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the top, looks golden and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.



You may use all-purpose flour or white whole wheat flour in place of if you wish.To make it oil-free, you can choose to replace the vegan butter with applesauce.
You can store this easy vegan cornbread covered at room temperature for 2 to 3 days or in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
You can also freeze this egg-free cornbread for up to 1 month.
You may want to substitute organic cane sugar for a natural sweetener. I wouldn't suggest you do so. The cornbread's flavor and texture are compromised when using sweeteners like maple, agave syrup, and even coconut sugar. Yes, we have tried that.
