Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups coarsely ground cornmeal
  • ¾  cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼  cup  Purecane™ zero- calorie Baking Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup whole milk
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and place a 9-inch cast-iron skillet inside to heat while you make the batter.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, Purecane™ zero- calorie Baking Sweetener, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk in the milk, buttermilk, and eggs. Whisk in almost all of the melted butter, reserving about one tablespoon for the skillet later on.
  3. Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Coat the bottom and sides of the hot skillet with the remaining butter. Pour the batter into the skillet and place it in the center of the oven. Bake until the center is firm and a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. 
  4. Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Slice, serve, and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

You will love the taste of Purecane Baking Sweetener and how similar it browns to sugar. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your Purecane baking experience:

  • Don’t forget to bring your butter to room temperature if you are blending butter with Purecane.
  • Purecane will take a little longer to blend with butter, but it is worth the wait.
  • If you prefer a moister baked result, consider increasing your eggs or the amount of butter you use.
  • For recipes calling for 1 cup or more of PURECANE™ Baking Sweetener, you may wish to add 1/8 teaspoon of salt for a better balanced sweetness.
