No-Fuss Vegan Cornbread

Food52

Every other Thursday, Gena Hamshaw of the blog Choosing Raw shares satisfying, flavorful recipes that also happen to be vegan.

Today: A cornbread that's everything you want it to be.

This is my Goldilocks cornbread. It’s a little sweet, but not too sweet; a little salty, but not overly so. I use fine cornmeal or corn flour in the recipe, which creates a texture that isn’t too rich or dense, but isn’t quite cake-y either. Everything about this cornbread is a delightful compromise.

More: What pairs better with vegan cornbread than vegan chili?

I love to keep a batch of cornbread around at this time of year, especially for dipping into soups and stews or to serve with a warm tofu breakfast scramble. The cornbread keeps nicely for two or three days, and you can reheat the leftovers in the oven (or microwave) for a quick and comforting afternoon snack. If you do serve it on its own, try topping it with a dollop of coconut oil.
