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!

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
