Hello & Happy Saturday!!
I don’t typically feature new recipes on a weekend, but this one was just too good to pass up! Since the first sign of fall I’ve been whipping up effortless pumpkin concepts as let’s face it..
Basic or not, everyone loves pumpkin until they get maxed out on it a month later, and with taking care of a newborn we’ve become all about the effortless lol.
You can pretty much throw pumpkin in any recipe and make it work. What I do see a lot of though is people throwing in a tablespoon of pumpkin puree and defining it as a pumpkin recipe lol. 1tbsp of puree does not a “pumpkin recipe” make. I personally love at least 1 cup in a recipe to garner any nutrients, take on the gorgeous orange hue and to provide that mellow pumpkin flavor.
While I’ve produced the staple pumpkin cookies, muffins, cinnamon rolls, breads and more, I’ve been looking for more unique concepts such as the Pumpkin Biscuits and now the new vegan Pumpkin Cornbread! If you know me, you know I’m all about the biscuits, but as a true Southerner, I also love a good cornbread!
What’s fab about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs flavor, has just enough moisture, that gorgeous orange hue, pairs seamlessly with the Cinnamon Maple Butter, is perfect to pair with soup, perfect for fall, great for entertaining, and still possesses that classic corn flavor!
If you love all things pumpkin or fun festive vegan recipes, you’re going to love this new vegan Pumpkin Cornbread with Cinnamon Maple Butter!!
