  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 1 teaspoon corn oil
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Cooking spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place an 8-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven to preheat. In a large bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add egg substitute, oil, buttermilk, and water, stirring until just moistened. Using oven mitts, remove skillet from oven and coat liberally with cooking spray.

Pour batter into skillet and bake for 20–25 minutes or until cornbread is golden and cooked through.
