      This is the best vegan cornbread recipe I've found (and I been on a quest to find one for 5 years). I have a few tips for the other cooks out there. (1) Add one tablespoon of vital wheat gluten flour to help with the binding. (2) Let the batter sit for about 10 to 15 minutes before baking, in order to let it become more glutenous so it won't crumble when done baking. (3) Bake it in a cast iron skillet: First, preheat the cast iron skillet in the oven. When the oven is done preheating, it's time to add the batter. Take out the cast iron skillet with pot holders (It's hot!) add a tablespoon or 2 of oil, and roll it around greasing the bottom and sides. Then add the batter, and pop it back into the oven. Baking in the cast iron skillet give the cornbread nice crispy edges. I only needed to bake mine for 18 minutes. (4) 2 Variation ideas are adding a little vanilla extract, or some maple syrup with a can of drained chopped green chilis.

      Really enjoyed this recipe! Recently, I've tried several to see if I can match Bob's prepackaged gluten free cornbread and this is very close! I am always substituting, so I thought I'd list...

      1 cup all-purpose flour = 1/2 cup gluten free all-purpose 1/4 cup brown rice flour 1/4 cup corn flour

      1/4 cup sugar = 3 tbsp agave and 8 drops of liquid stevia

      1/4 cup oil = 1/4 cup applesauce

      Hint~ I find that setting flax mixture on top of stove as it preheats works to help bind!

      Quite a nice, corny cornbread. I ground flaxseed in a coffee grinder. I did skip steps 3 and 4 and just added the flax meal to the whole mixture. It baked up just fine.
