COMBINESpero Sunflower Cream Cheese, maple syrup, salt, cornstarch, vanilla, and plant-based milk in a bowl. stir together with a spatula until very smooth and creamy.
POUR batter into the prepared pan, tapping the pan against the counter to remove air bubbles. bake in the preheated oven until puffed, very well browned, and nearly burned on the edges, 50 to 55 minutes. increase oven temperature to 425 degrees f in the last 10 minutes.
