    This vegan and gluten-free cornbread has the perfect ratio of cornmeal to flour. It’s not too coarse-grained, but it still has the corn taste. It’s moist, tender, buttery, and only slightly sweet. It pairs perfectly with chili or stews.
    Cornbread is considered a staple in many homes and everyone has an opinion on it. Is it sweet or is it savory? Do you add honey or molasses? Should you mix in actual corn kernels or leave them out? And what about flour? Can you use anything other than cornmeal?
    Like any other dish made in several regions, the way you grew up eating it is the way you think it should be made. But the differences between Northern and Southern cornbread are dramatic. Southern cornbread is made with cornmeal only (no wheat), has very little or no sugar, and is cooked in a hot skillet on top of the stove and finished in the oven. Northern cornbread has a much higher percentage of flour, is very sweet, and baked in the oven.
    Which do you prefer? Sweet cake-like northern cornbread or savory dense southern cornbread? What if you could have a little bit of both in one recipe? This cornbread recipe delivers exactly that - it’s slightly sweet, tender, and moist with a delicate crumb.

    This recipe is good but I don't like sugar in mine. Tip, grease the cast iron pan with vegan butter, put it in the oven at 350 to 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, takes it out and pour the batter in. The batter should sizzle a little. This forms a crust on the bottom and around the sides. Put the pan back in the oven.

    Could I replace the oat flour with something else? I have celiac disease and can’t eat anything with oats, I just feel sick even if they’re gluten free :c

    This was really good, I added some warmed up frozen corn in for extra texture and upped the coconut sugar I used in it to 5 Tbsp just for added sweetness. I'm going to try to heat up my cast iron skillet so it's really hot to get a good crust like you said next time. Will make this again.

    I love everything about your videos, including the minimalist esthetics and the final review. Special request: can you show more recipes with no oil/fat please? They are great but I find that I always have to alter them to reduce the fat. Thank you so much!

      Myriam, I do the same. I LOVE Petra's recipes, but I do tend to sub applesauce for oil, or things of that nature. :)

    We are VERY serious about cornbread in the south. But since going gluten free I haven’t been able to enjoy my favorites! I never thought to use oat flour, I’d be interested to see how that turns out

      @bombalu5 My comment was that I love beans and corn, WITH cornbread. NO idea why you felt an urge to make an ugly comment anyway.

    Thank you for this recipe. I look forward to trying it and I appreciate the hard work you put into making conventional recipes healthier and also adaptable to special needs such as gluten free.
    It was a bonus to see how to make "buttermilk" out of almond milk, so thank you for that too. And finally, I had no idea about the cultural difference in corn bread - another bonus. Thank you again.

    Corn is used in the cattle industry to fatten them before the slaughter......

      I don't understand your comment? I 100% agree that slaughter is TORTURE for animals, but corn is a good food for humans.
