    These look pretty and delicious. I might even throw a little sweetcorn into the batter!

    I'd love to make this for my diabetic clients .
    I see you have both maple syrup (or honey) in this recipe ---- since diabetics cannot have that, I would love to try it with Stevia instead... it tastes very sweet, and has no bitter after-taste like Splenda and other sweeteners do!! Thanks, and FIVE to you :+D
