Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I am used to I grew up on cornbread made by my southern born mama. So trying a DIFFERENT recipe with gasp sugar substitute was very scary for me. But I did it and honestly I like this version of cornbread better than my mom's (shhhh don't tell her) and I have made it three times since for different meals. So this Truvia Cornbread recioe stays in my recipe book - thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Even Better than the Original! I absolutely adore cornbread, but always hesitate to make it as often as I would like because it contains so much sugar. I decided to give this recipe a whirl and I was so impressed with the taste and texture! I love using Truvia to bake rather than another replacement sweetener because it's natural and I don't feel like I'm replacing sugar with a ton of chemicals instead. This recipe is going in the usual rotation!
