This is the best Vegan Skillet Cornbread recipe ever. It is so moist, slightly sweet and tastes just like traditional cornbread without the dairy. It will be the only vegan cornbread recipe that you will ever need.

Vegan Skillet Cornbread is delicious served alone or with chili,  Vegan Gumbo recipe and a side of my Southern Mixed Greens.

Growing up in Jamaica hot cornmeal porridge was a staple for us. Somehow, the corn on the husk there was very hardy, not like the soft sweet corn sold here in the USA. Corn was also enjoyed there in soups and roasted on open untreated charcoal fire pits.

As a dessert, we had cornmeal pudding which is a very dense, moist and rich cake. It was made with coconut milk, spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, allspice (I will share my version soon).

How To Make Vegan Cornbread

Vegan Skillet Cornbread is so easy to bake in a skillet, Basically, mix wet ingredients in a bowl along with ground flaxseeds, mix dry ingredients in another then combine both wet and dry ingredients. Scoop batter in a lightly greased skillet and bake in a preheated oven.

Back to the recipe, this is the best vegan cornbread I have ever had, it is so moist and delicious. I used melted Earth Balance Buttery Spread but you can try coconut oil. For the oat flour, I processed rolled oats in my high-speed blender. For the almond flour, I used Bob’s Red Mill brand. The skillet I used it the Eurocast Professional Cookware.

    Really excited to try this recipe this week. Every recipe I’ve tried of yours has been really good! Question- do you think corn flour (masa) would work as a substitute for the fine cornmeal?

    Great, easy, cornbread! And It turned out great with all purpose flour since I didn’t have the almond on hand. We enjoyed it with your black eyed peas with the tofu dogs recipe!

      Hello Desiree, I believe any gluten-free flour blend would work if you are on a gluten-free diet and if not, all-purpose flour will be fine. Just bear in mind that I haven’t tried it with these flours that I mentioned. If it works for you, I would love to know.
