It's not necessary to serve maple syrup with this moist corn bread from Dorothy Bateman of Carver, Massachusetts. The maple flavoring is baked into the loaf, providing a delicious change of pace from traditional corn bread.

"Good recipe. I have made this several times. I I use pure maple syrup. It's great to have a recipe for corn bread that does not require sugar."

"I've made this a number of times. It is very good and I've served it with chili or a hearty bowl of soup. It is definitely best served warm from the oven so you can't make it ahead.. I do get the dry ingredients ready ahead and then just whip it up quick before dinner. Everybody loves this cornbread."

"I changed it a little: I used white whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup cornmeal, 2 eggs and 2 tsp baking powder. Then I melted butter in a 10 in. cast iron pan in the oven, poured the batter in and baked for about 20 minutes. It was a big hit with dinner. No one could quite identify the "different" flavor (maple) but it went over well."
