cornbread recipe halifax nutrition nova scotia


  • 1 C fine cornmeal. I love Speerville cornmeal out of NB

  • 1 C whole white or whole wheat flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp sea salt

  • ½ C unsalted butter or olive oil

  • ⅓ C honey

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 C quick vegan buttermilk

  • Optional: a pinch of red pepper flakes

Make your quick vegan buttermilk: combine 1 Cup any plant based milk with 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice and set aside. This will curdle and make a quick buttermilk. *real buttermilk is also ok.


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Grease a 8 or 9 inch baking dish.

  • Melt the butter and set aside. Don’t use butter if you’re substituting with olive oil.

  • In a bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, honey and melted butter or olive oil.

  • Add the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt. Add the red pepper flakes, if using.

  • Stir until just combined.

  • Pour the batter into the dish and bake for about 20 mins, until golden brown and the edges have pulled away from the sides.

Let rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
