This vegan cornbread recipe is easy to make and can be thrown together in about an hour. When I use to work for a Caribbean restaurant in Portsmouth, NH we had a cornbread recipe that called for Cayenne pepper and I thought it was interesting. I've since adapted Cayenne pepper into this recipe to counter the Brown Sugar. It's the subtly sweet and spiciness that make's this soft, delicious vegan cornbread it's greatness. Let me know what you think about it in the comments!
