  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). If using a cast iron skillet, place it in the oven as it heats.
  • In a small bowl, combine the non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar. Set aside to curdle, creating a vegan buttermilk.
    1 Cup Non-Dairy Milk, 1 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients:
    1 Cup Cornmeal, 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour, 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder, ½ tsp. Salt, ¼ Cup Sugar
  • Add the vegetable oil and curdled milk to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined; avoid overmixing to keep the cornbread light and fluffy.
  • Remove the hot skillet from the oven (carefully!) and grease it lightly with some extra oil or vegan butter.
  • Pour the batter into the skillet, spreading evenly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the cornbread cool in the skillet for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy warm!
