Sweet Microwave Cornbread

What's cheap, tasty, and amazingly easy to make? Cornbread! This recipe appeared in the book Vegan Lunch Box, submitted by the Vegetarian Network of Austin. Corn bread is one 'bread' that works particularly well in the microwave, so I modified it to cater to my lazy side.

Sweet (microwave) Cornbread
2/3 Cup maple syrup
1/3 Cup canola oil
2/3 Cup non-dairy milk
1 Cup flour
1 Cup cornmeal
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

In separate bowls, mix the wet ingredients together and the dry ingredients together. Combine, and mix well. Pour into a round glass dish and microwave on high for 8 minutes. (Use a dish that has no handles - the batter will not cook evenly in a dish with handles. If you don't have a uniformly round dish, then add another 1/3 Cup of non-dairy milk to the batter and bake for 35 minutes at 350 F.)

Serve warm with your favorite vegan margarine and enjoy!


  1. Mmm...I am such a sucker for cornbread. Having it this easy to make might be dangerous for me...

  2. I made this recipe and I have to say... I was IMPRESSED! The corn bread came out fluffy and sweet. I can't help it, I have to make it again! It took 10 minutes!
