Buttery Vegan Cornbread

BY : PUBLISHED : November 19th, 2014 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

Perfect side for the holiday table! The buttery flavor in this cornbread is attained by using a combination of avocado oil (the butteriest!) and a small dollop of vegan mayo. Though you can use any neutral oil you happen to have on hand. Recipe can be gluten-free or not (the gluten-free version is slightly denser, as seen above, but still delicious!)
