Moist Vegan Cornbread
This healthy vegan cornbread is so far the best out of all the breads I've made! I use all natural ingredients, not even cornmeal just raw corn. Why would dried out corn taste better than fresh corn?
Unlike most cornbread recipes I've seen, I grind up half of the corn and keep half of the kernels whole. This gives the bread a nice explosion of sweet corn in every bite! The jalapeño adds an excellent spiciness to counter the sweetness.
This vegan cornbread tastes amazing with chili.
Items needed for preparation:
- Food processor
- Bread pan
- Medium sized mixing bowl
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 cobs of corn
- 1/4 cup of oil
- 1/3 cup of agave
- 1/2 cup of applesauce
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1/6-1/4 of cup minced jalapeño
- 1 tbsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of baking soda
Step 1: Preheat oven to 450 and grease bread pan with oil.
Step 2: In a medium sized mixing bowl mix flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Slice the corn corn off the cob by slicing down with a sharp knife. Put half of the corn through a food processor to get more of a cornmeal, or mush it up real good (with a pestle and mortar-like crushing). Drain it of all its juices and mix in all the corn with the flour (mmm... corn juice tastes so sweet!).
Step 3: In a separate bowl mix oil, agave, applesauce, and vegan milk together until well blended. Add to dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly and add the minced jalapeño. Pour the cornbread mixture into a bread pan.
Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until a knife or toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve.
