LOVED IT! This is delicious. I don't care for the taste of buttermilk in my cornbread, so I used 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 cup buttermilk.

e enjoy thid corn bread. Being someone with **Type I Diabetes** I find it difficult finding recipes with *few* carbs, however, this recipe with only 20 carbs ~ 15 grams = 1 carb comes close. Thank you for sharing!! J.

I actually didn't make this yet; a co-worker did at a pot luck of ours, and I had to have the recipe! I can't wait to make it for my family!

The addition of maple syrup and pecans in this corn bread make it so special! Being from the deep south I love corn bread and this one is a keeper. It's bakes up and comes out of the pan as a pretty loaf.
