I followed Cookgirls technique and cut the recipe in half and cooked it in an 8" cast iron skillet. I cooked it about 35-40 minutes. Worked great. I was hoping that it would be sweeter due to the maple syrup..we like ours on the sweet side. The carrots were a nice touch. I've had corn in my cornbread but never thought to use carrots. Thanks for posting. :)
