Versatile Traditional Corn Bread Recipe

Vegan, Gluten Free or Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian Cornbread

Adapted From Heaven's Banquet Ayurvedic Cookbook by Miriam Hospodar

Corn Bread

Quick, easy, satisfying corn bread recipe, goes with all kinds of food - soups, stews, baked beans, chili - e.g. Black Bean Soup, or Jamaican Red Bean Stew.

Vegan versions of corn bread are just as tasty as ovo-lacto vegetarian versions - and nobody can tell the difference. So, feel free to ditch the saturated fat!

One of the nicest things about cornbread is that it's best hot and fresh out of the oven. For most quick breads, this is not so.

Recipe Tips:

The general rule with quick breads is equal amounts of wet and dry ingredients. But because corn swells up a lot in cooking, corn bread batter should be looser and runnier.

This is a big recipe: You'll need a 9 x 12 inch pan or larger. If you want a smaller batch, halve the recipe and use an 8 x 8, or 9 x 9 inch pan.

This recipe also has a gluten free vegan version, which our tasters liked best of all! If you like, you can combine the gluten free dry ingredients with the dairy and egg in the vegetarian version.

We've specified organic ingredients for best flavor, no GMO's and no herbicides or pesticides. But it's up to you whether you follow that direction.

Recipe Comments

I made your vegan cornbread and the kids loved it! We've made the corn bread again already and I can't wait to try more of your recipes. Good work! - Jenny W.

Question: I would like to add whole corn to this recipe, what should I adjust so it comes out not watery? Thanks - Peggy G.

Answer: Fresh or frozen corn? I suppose it doesn't matter much. If frozen, thaw it first. I would say reduce the liquid in the recipe by 2 Tbsp - Savvy Veg
