This is my favorite cornbread recipe. It's quick and simple, the kind of recipe you can whip up at any time because you always have the ingredients on hand.


  • 1 c cornmeal
  • 1 c whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine salt
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (such as fat-free soymilk)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp raw sugar (optional)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F.

Step 2

Whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl.

Step 3

Add non-dairy milk, applesauce, maple syrup and sugar, if using, on top. Using a spatula, stir until just combined.

Step 4

Pour batter into a nonstick shallow 9" pie dish, or other oven-safe dish. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
