This was good for a healthier version of corn bread. However I had to use a lot of butter on my piece, other wise it was a little on the dry side and not as flavorful as my normal corm muffins. It probably wasn't any healthier by the time I was done. I served with a mexican casserole.

This was my first attempt at baking a cornbread. I was trying to find one that is similar to a hometown diner in Seaville, NJ called Dino's. This was not the one but pretty good, nonetheless. I baked this up today for the Zaar Healthy ABC game. Here are a few notes that I made and this may have made the difference in the recipe: 1) I used Whole Wheat Flour, 2) Splenda, 3) 2% buttermilk (that's all I could find), 4) liquid egg whites, 5) real butter and 6) Pam w/flour instead of the oil to grease my pan. Thank you for the recipe but I am going to keep additional note: I think this bread would be very tasty with a chili or something of that nature. Thanks for posting!

This is the first time I have made cornbread, and Barb, your recipe was wonderful! My 6yo son gobbled up 3 pieces, and asked me if I would make it again soon - you have a winner with us, thank you so much for sharing this terrific recipe. It's a keeper!
