Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or gently spritz with cooking spray.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk dairy free milk, pumpkin purée and maple syrup together until smooth.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk cornmeal, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt until combined.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into wet ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour into the prepared dish.
  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing it to a wire cooling rack to continue cooling completely.
  • Cut into squares and enjoy!

Notes

~ Use fine or medium grind cornmeal for a more cake-like texture.
~ Use a gluten free flour blend instead to make this recipe gluten free.
~ Use 100% pure pumpkin purée, not pumpkin pie filling.
~ Use pure maple syrup, not pancake syrup.
~ Whisk just until combined. A few lumps are fine. Do not over mix.
~ Baked until the top is golden brown and the sides are pulling away from the baking dish. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
~ Let the cornbread cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 10 to 15 minutes before removing it from the pan to continue cooling completely.

Storage/Freezing
This cornbread is best kept at room temperature. Wrap it tightly in parchment paper and store in an air-tight container. It will last for 1 to 2 days.
After 1 to 2 days, it's best to transfer it to the fridge or freezer. It will keep for 4 to 5 days in the fridge, again wrapped well and in an air-tight container.
Or transfer it to a freezer safe plastic bag or container and keep in the freezer for 2 to 3 months.
