  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining dry ingredients.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until combined. Avoid over mixing.
  5. Pour the cornbread batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Cool before serving and then enjoy on its own, with vegan butter, homemade jam, or with your favorite soup, stew or chili.
