Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cup corn oil or any vegetable oil
  • cup maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup sweet corn frozen, fresh, or canned (and drained well)


  • Preheat oven to 400f (200c), and grease a 9" (22cm) baking dish.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix flour, cornbread, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then add oil, maple syrup, milk, vinegar and sweet corn and whisk together until just combined.
  • Pour the batter in your prepared baking dish, and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


  • Adding sweet corn is optional, you can also add herbs and sliced jalapenos if desired.
  • Maple syrup can be substituted with cane sugar, agave syrup, or honey (if not vegan).
  • Almond milk can be substituted with soy milk.
  • Store at room temperature in an airtight container for 1-2 days, or in the fridge for up to 7 days. If the weather is hot, it's recommended that you store the cornbread in the fridge so it does not develop any mold.
  • Allow your cornbread to completely cool down before storing it in the fridge.
  • Enjoy the cornbread either cold, or warm after reheating it in the oven for 10 minutes at 180c (350f).
