Whether you’re serving this sweet, baked comfort food from the Easy Vegan Comfort Food cookbook alongside your favorite soup or as a snack drizzled with maple syrup, it always hits the spot. Prefer a more savory taste? Shredded vegan cheddar and sliced jalapeños will do the trick.
What you need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup cornmeal
⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
1 cup unsweetened vegan milk
3 tablespoons maple syrup, plus more for serving
Vegan butter, for serving
What you do:
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, milk, and maple syrup and stir until just combined. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and stir until just combined.
- Scrape batter into baking pan and bake for 20 to 22 minutes, until a knife inserted into center comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 to 10 minutes before serving with butter and maple syrup.
