Blueberry Rosemary Cornmeal Cake

Previously on ThisVeganLyfe:

Amber reiterated for the thousandth time that she doesn't really "do sweets," (whatever that means). Stay tuned to see if she'll remind us again today! 

Hey y'all! In case you didn't know, I'm not really into sweets and I'm def not into all this baking I've been doing for Vegan MoFo this week. I'm like really not good at it (I'm a broken record over here).  The only things I really know how to make and make well is cornbread, coca cola cake, and cornmeal cake - which is just sweet cornbread. Keep in mind I've stated several times that I don't like sweets that much - this should tip everyone off that this cake isn't overly sweet. It's light and won't weigh you down after your big vegan dinner.

Sometimes I make this cake with no fruit at all. Every time I make this cake I play around with the herbs. This is my fave combo right now but raspberries with basil is great too. If you have an aversion to pairing fresh herbs with your fruit this is probably not for you but maybe give it a go anyway cuz you never know when you're tastebuds are secretly changing behind your back.

Bonus: this cake is sugar free and gluten free. It was my Plan B just in case my Savory Zucchini Bread with Olives didn't turn out.

Up next, Vegan MoFo has given us a prompt that seems damn near impossible: make something spicy using no chilis. I truly don't know about this one y'all. 

ICYMI, you too can make a gluten free, super filling, savory zucchini bread

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,



  1. Blueberries & rosemary sounds like an amazing combination!
