"I love corn bread, and I think this version is much better than traditional ones," remarks Heather Andersen of Tucson, Arizona. "Served warm, it's moist yet low in fat," she promises.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine the egg whites, milk and applesauce. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Pour into a 9-in. square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from pan to wire rack. Serve warm.
