I have a really good Vegan Cornbread recipe that I make for my family, but am unable to enjoy because it uses all-purpose flour and isn’t gluten-free. I was inspired by a Facebook friend to make a gluten-free version and am happy to say I have just enjoyed the first piece of cornbread I’ve had in a long time! This one is softer and lighter in texture and a seemed a tad bit dry to me compared to my other recipe, but maybe that’s expected with a gluten-free version? But, I can’t eat the other version, so I’m fine with it. I actually liked mine plain, but after I drizzled a little maple syrup over it, it was even better. Also, try my Vegan Pumpkin Cornbread recipe!
