1.  Preheat oven 350ºF.  Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.

2.  Whisk cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.  Whisk egg, buttermilk and oil in a separate bowl.  Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.  Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.

  • After reading the one review that comes up on the same page with the recipe, I also went with white whole-wheat flour.
  • Because I used the Splenda blend, I only used 2 Tablespoons.
  • I was happy to find a recipe that was fairly low in carbs for the serving size!
  • Definitely making this my "tried and true" recipe
