This is a nice vegan cornbread recipe that is quite moist and really easy to make.
You probably already have all the ingredients on hand, with the exception of cornmeal, unless you use it on a regular basis.
The only thing I really use it for is to make cornbread so that’s the only reason I already had some.
I don’t know why, but the majority of the time I make it for breakfast (is that weird?) and rarely as a side dish to a meal like chili.
This cornbread is dense in texture and not a sweet cornbread, but you could easily make it as sweet as you like just by adjusting the amount of maple syrup in the recipe.

Tip #1: This is a very dense cornbread and not a sweet cornbread, which I like. However, if you like a sweeter cornbread, just increase the maple syrup by 1 – 2 tablespoons until you get it to the right sweetness.
Tip #2: I usually use a round cake pan and cut the pieces in triangle shapes. Today, I used an 8 x 8 glass Pyrex baking dish and cut them in squares and they came out much thicker this way.
Tip #3: After you prepare the batter, it will be on the thicker side – as opposed to a thinner batter like a pancake batter or pre-packaged cornbread batter. Just use a spatula to transfer it into your baking dish.
Important Tip: Corn is one of the top GMO crops produced today. PLEASE make sure you use ORGANIC cornmeal when making this recipe or any other recipe that calls for “corn” or a “corn” ingredient. I purchase my organic cornmeal from the bulk section at Whole Foods, but if you don’t have one nearby, you can order organic cornmeal online from Amazon. There is such little cost difference and it is so important to your health!
Tip #4: If you are not using a glass pan, bake the cornbread at 375 degrees.
