Vegan Skillet CornbreadYou know you have a good thing going when you make the same dish three times in one week…and your husband can master it in one try! I’ve been obsessed with the Veganomicon’s Vegan Skillet Cornbread for a couple years, but it has only been recently that I’ve actually made it in a real cast iron skillet.Vegan Skillet Cornbread_4Zachary definitely is to blame for my current obsession with anything cast iron. We are so hooked that we’ve stopped using our non-stick skillets altogether. I don’t know why we hadn’t tossed those suckers years ago considering how horrible they are! Vegan Skillet Cornbread_5I can confidently say this vegan cornbread trumps all others (non vegan included). Aside from being uber easy to make, it’s super moist, which we all know makes or breaks a cornbread recipe. Nothing makes me wanna toss a cornbread aside when it tastes as dry as cardboard. Vegan Skillet Cornbread_3This guy pairs perfectly with any stew or soup. But what I’m really digging right now is my latest breakfast creation – cornbread topped with sautéed kale, roasted potatoes, fried tempeh sticks, with a dash of maple syrup over it ALL. Comfort food at it’s best! What would you pair it with? Vegan Skillet Cornbread_2

Vegan Skillet Cornbread
Ingredients
2 cups vegan milk
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup oil
2 cups cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Directions
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease cast iron skillet with oil.
Combine 2 cups milk with apple cider vinegar and let “curdle” while you prep the rest of the ingredients. I usually mix the oil in with these wet ingredients after the milk and vinegar have set for a few minutes. Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in wet ingredients. Mix until ingredients are just combined as you don’t want to over mix – lumps are okay! Pour batter in the skillet and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Once done, remove from oven and let cool before cutting into pieces.
