And, after making this amazing cornbread without cornmeal, I bet that a can of cream style corn will become a staple in your pantry, too!
How to Make Dairy-Free Cornbread
Contrary to popular belief, almost all cream style corn – also known as creamed corn – does not actually contain any dairy cream.
However, I do traditionally make this recipe with butter. You can make it non-dairy by substituting the butter for 1/2 cup of Crisco or Coconut oil. Simply melt the Crisco or Coconut oil and let cool before adding it to the mix for the best, easiest non-dairy cornbread.
