Yeah really just 1/2 cup of each the batter is a lot like boxed cake batter in consistency.
When I was experimenting I kept thinking it needs more too but they kept falling and coming out too heavy. This is the closest I have ever come to getting them light and fluffy like regular cupcake / muffins. My hubby adores them. He's a tough critic too. You can choose other DaVinci's other than caramel but that is our favorite flavor we have used in them.

Glad to be back though my Lyme disease has still got me down, however we have found that low carb helps some with the symptoms.

I haven't tried it yet but I'm thinking of making this same recipe into a German Chocolate cake too. I have a recipe somewhere for the topping I made up years ago.

What could I sub for the Carbquick? I don't have it and don't want to buy it but I have almond flour, coconut flour, oat fiber, protein powder, egg white powder.

Glad to see you back. Years ago your cornbread recipe saved me from the dreaded "country girl cornbread withdrawal", I remember the title of the recipe being "They Said I Couldn't Have Cornbread" Alas, I don't use that recipe anymore since I eliminated soy but I have a really great replacement now using lupin flour, ground pork rinds and about 1/4 cup non-gmo cornmeal which I'm planning on trying to replace with ground up baby corn but haven't tried yet.

This looks like a good recipe but I don't use Carbquick or the Davinci syrups so I would have to sub those but I might try it.

Thanks

I made these today. Great!!! Thank you for the recipe. I was wondering if this would be good as a cake or if nuts were added, brownies.

Oh shoot I forgot to tell you that you don't have to store these in the fridge. I actually recommend that you don't they are much better just sitting in a plastic container or stacked in a covered glass cake dish. We usually eat them all within 5 days and they taste just as good as the first day. My hubby likes them warm right out of the oven and I prefer them room temp. It's nice to have a low carb dessert that doesn't require the fridge!

Any kind of low carb baking mix should work about the same but I have fell in love with carbquik. I just got 4 boxes shipped from netrition last week to resupply us!

I remember you too! I have stayed away from most of the soy that I can too I hardly use any now. I'm going to try you suggestion on the different ingredients for the cornbread. I have several recipes that I'm trying to revamp to omit soy too!
