Blueberry Cornbread

Blueberry Cornbread Scones
Moist, but not overly so. A hint of sweetness.
  • 1 and ¼ cups of all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cornmeal
  • ¼ cup vegan granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ canola oil or ¼ cup applesauce
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon of ground flax seed + 3 tablespoons water)
  • ½ - ¾ cup frozen blueberries (not thawed)
  • Coconut-oil cooking spray (or other, to prepare pan)
  • Optional for topping before baking: decorative vegan sugar crystals or turbinado sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Use a whisk to combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Make the flax egg in a separate small bowl (combine ground flax seed and water; allow to sit for a minute until it gels -- it should be goopy like an egg white).
  4. Combine almond milk, oil or applesauce, and flax egg. Gently fold this wet mixture into the dry mixture only until all ingredients are wet -- do not use a mixer or over-stir. Batter will be thick.
  5. Gently fold in frozen blueberries. Let batter rest for a minute; it should be thick yet fluffy/airy.
  6. Divide mixture evenly into a prepared scone pan. (If you don't have a scone pan, you can use a muffin pan, or pour the entire mixture into a prepared 8” x 8” baking pan.)
  7. Optional: Sprinkle top with decorative sugar crystals for a touch more sweetness. And classiness.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes (toothpick inserted should come out clean).
  9. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan (or just go for it).

  1. These look so yummy, Lisa! Will give them a try.
    My wife and I have been full vegans for about three years now and love it. So many good reasons to go vegan.
    Reading your “About Page” was very interesting. Sounds very much like the way we have decided to live our lives. Vegan, but not doing without the things we love to eat. It’s working out *great*.
    Thank you for making your site available for people to learn from! Cheers!

    • Thank you, Douglas! I’m glad things are going so great for you and your wife. Having a plant-based diet turns out to be a very easy thing to do (once you know what you’re doing). Cheers!
