Texas Corn Bread

2 T. flax gel*
2 c. soy milk
3 T. oil
1/2 c. honey
1 1/2 c. w.w. pastry flour
1 c. cornmeal
2 T. baking powder (non-aluminum)
1 1/2 t. salt

Mix together flax gel, milk, oil, and honey. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix into milk mixture until batter is smooth. Pour into a lightly greased/oiled 8x11 inch glass baking dish. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 25 minutes. Serves 4-6.

*The flax gel is made by boiling 1/2 T. flax seeds in 1/2 c. water for approx. 20 minutes. The water becomes thick and gooey like egg whites. You do not need to strain out the seeds.
