    This is the best recipe ever. When I'm craving corndogs, I'll through in FF hotdogs so that one is in each slice. Thanks for sharing.

    LOVED this recipe. I did add some Splenda because I like a little sweet in my corn bread. My son and his cousin wiped out over half of it in minutes. I will be making it again soon. Thank you!

    I love cornbread and WW recipes. This was easy to prepare. I did cut it in half and cooked it in an 8-inch pan. I think next time I would add in some splenda only because DH and I both like our cornbread on the sweet side. I used egg substitute in place of the eggs. Thanks for posting. :)

    This cornbread went great with my taco soup tonight. My daughter loves cornbread and I was happy to find a recipe that was a bit healthier than usual. I added about 1/3 cup of Splenda to make it sweet and baked in a 9X9 pan at 350 for about 25 minutes. The flavor and texture were just right. Thanks for posting!


I enjoy cooking & baking. I am always trying new things and love to pass on recipies. I find comfort in cooking. I have a wonderful golden retreiver named Farm Dog and a cat named Puddy. They are the best company a girl could have, being a person who is going to be divorced. I have lost over 20 pounds on weight watchers and I am still loosing.
