Vegan Stove-Top Cornbread

“I started experimenting with stove-top baking because the oven where I'm staying is broken, and it's opened up a whole new world to me! I adapted this recipe from several that I found online and this version is the best yet. You can vary ingredients and proportions to suit your tastes; the cornbread seems quite agreeable. I would never normally buy creamed corn, but I'm staying with my boyfriend's family and they have it, so I used it - I'm sure you could also just use regular corn kernals. You can use any egg replacer equal to one egg in place of the EnerG and water. You can also use any non-hydrogenated margarine or vegetable oil; I just prefer Earth Balance. And I know honey is not technically vegan (I eat it, though), so substitute another sweetener if you want to make this recipe truly, truly vegan! YOU WILL NEED A 10" CAST-IRON SKILLET FOR THIS RECIPE and something to cover it with. Have fun and be creative!”

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and sea salt; set aside.
  2. Add apple cider vinegar to soy milk to sour the milk; set aside.
  3. In a small cup, mix egg replacer with warm water until smooth.
  4. In another small cup, melt 1/3 cup of Earth Balance margarine.
  5. In a second bowl, mix together soured soy milk, water/egg replacer mixture, melted margarine, and honey until well blended.
  6. Pour liquid mixture into dry mixture, and stir until just combined.
  7. Add creamed corn and mix gently.
  8. Heat 10" cast-iron skillet over medium heat, and melt a generous ammount of margarine in it to coat bottom and sides. Turn heat down to low.
  9. Pour batter into greased skillet and smooth out top.
  10. Cover and cook for 30-40 minutes. Check after about 30 minutes. When entire top of cornbread is firm (you can also insert a knife in the center to test for doneness), turn off heat, but leave cover on for several minutes for cornbread to finish cooking.
  11. Cut and serve! Great with collard greens!
  12. Note for Vegan omit the honey and use another sweetener.
