Pumpkin Cornbread {Gluten-Free & Vegan}

November 6, 2013

My name is Davida and I am addicted to cornbread. A recipe needs to be mind-blowingly good (I’m not including oatmeal) for me to make it twice. I’m going on 3 with this one. And it’s healthy, which makes me feel awesome when I slather it with honey or cheese.

Pumpkin Cornbread that is gluten-free AND vegan!and the best thing to happen to your Fall baking!

Yes, you heard me correctly, I said cheese. Cornbread Grilled Cheese in fact. I wish I could take credit for this one because it really is genius but props go to the guys at Comida Del Pueblo who managed to give me a full on mouthgasm with their cornbread grilled cheese number at The Toronto Underground Market last year. They one uped me with guac and sour cream but you better bet that will be happening in my kitchen very soon.

 

I have no idea why but I don’t think I tried cornbread until a few years ago. It just isn’t a Canadian thing I guess? We stick to our polar bear meat and gravy coated french fries. But since discovering I actually have a weakness for all things cornbread I’ve uncovered a whole new world of cornbread eats. The most winning combination by far is the cornbread grilled cheese. And please people, let’s not skimp on the cheese here. Some 5 year aged cheddar on this bad boy.

But I’ve also been starting my days with cornbread. More of a classic with a Maven twist, I present to you cornbread coated with walnut butter and honey. Let me know if you want the walnut butter recipe.

 

Pumpkin Cornbread gluten-free and veganOther recent winning combinations include cornbread and cottage cheese, cornbread with peanut butter and apples and the always delicious cornbread and chili. At this point it’s basically a food group for me. I’m thinking big things like “cornbread week” and potentially hosting a cornbread eating contest out of my kitchen. Who’s with me? In the meantime make this recipe.

    I love cornbread. I hardly ever have it though because when I think of cornbread, I think of the Jiffy muffin mix box. That’s how we do it in the south – inhale cornbread mix from the box because we’re too lazy to make it ourselves. But your recipe doesn’t look too complicated, so you are tempting me to try making it from scratch!

    Confession: I’ve never had cornbread. It definitely must be a Canadian thing, because it’s not something that really ever comes to mind. In fact, I only -just- tried polenta for the first time a couple years back, and that was thanks to seeing it around the blog world. This bread looks delicious, though, so you may have just convinced me to give it a try.

    I’m with you on not skimping on the cheese. Don’t ever take away my cheese, ever. Like, never. Unless you’re willing to fight me, don’t mess with my cheese. And there are two kinds I hate: brie and goat cheese. Don’t defriend me. <3
    Your cornbread looks amazing! I bet it tastes extraaaa special with polar bear meat (gross, btw!!).
    Three times making this girly? It must be delish. Add this to the list of #foodDAVSmakesforMEGS2014
    Oh is that the wrong hash tag for this?? 🙂
    And yes, probably every comment henceforth will be about this #BBM shenanigans stuff. Sorry not sorry. This comment sucked. I’ll try harder next time.

    First of all: AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! #BBM2014 is in full swing! I’m so effing excited you were down with that idea. When we started discussing, I was like ummmmm DAVIDA TOO PLEASE. I mean, duh. You need to get on gchat immediately. All the cool BBM2014ers are doing it. I was really jealous of your convo with Meghan the other day since I don’t have an iPhone and can’t text you. Sad. Anyway, yeah girl, cornbread is definitely a southern thing, although I’ve never liked the stuff. I’ve only had cornbread that I liked one time. But yours looks effing scrumptious and you have to make it for me and that bitch above me. Cheese on it??? Holy fuck, yes to all of that. Plus, this is almost Paleo and you know how I feel about that. Ok well since Meghan already started it, I’m just gonna say it. Here it goes. I love you. There. I said it. And I mean it. And by the end of BBM2014, you’re gonna love me too. I’ll make you. And if you don’t, then there’s always BBM2015!

      Not sure about oat flour but wholegrain flour should work just find and if you use that you can omit the xanthan gum, because the gluten in the wholegrain flour will act as a glue instead!

Put in food processor and process for about 10 minutes or until butter consistency is reached (scrap down sides as needed). Add in half a teaspoon of sea salt and a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and nutmeg.

      All purpose will definitely work! Coconut flour will be a bit of a challenge though with no eggs. You can omit the xathan gum up if use all-purpose because the gluten in the flour will act at the glue instead!

    I can vouch for this recipe after making it with some chili this past week: DELICIOUS, not gummy at all, and perfect with soup or salad or plain with some mashed avocado and salt on top. While the pumpkin flavor didn’t come through (as expected), and the texture wasn’t my favorite until I let it cool completely, I ended up devouring the whole loaf with friends as its texture improved as it got room temp and the crust stayed nice and crusty (?).

    I love that I can remake this recipe with applesauce the rest of the year! Thanks Davida for pushing me to try VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE bread – something I never thought could work in my kitchen 🙂

      Awwww you’re the sweetest! Thank you Marisa!!! Let’s get real, it’s no buttery, gluten-filled cornbread, but for GF and Vegan, I’ll take it! Then again I slather mine in honey so it doesn’t make a huge different lol.

      it’s an oldie 😉 I just re-shot the recipe! Clearly I was stalking you before the beginning of time and you didn’t know I existed…this time change is making me anxious.

      Aw thank you so much! Definitely a new way to make cornbread but considering it’s pretty much as healthy as cornbread gets, it’s pretty darn good 😉

    What would you recommend for an almond milk sub – very allergic to it?

      regular milk would be fine or coconut milk if you’re dairy-free!

    Do you think it would affect the recipe if I left out the sugar? I’m on Yeast free restriction so sugar or anything sweet is a no-no.

      The recipe will certainly work but of course won’t be as sweet 😉 Enjoy!
