  • 2 large eggs, whites only
  • 1 1/3 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry (optional)
  • 2 cups defatted broth or low sodium chicken broth


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine egg whites, skim milk, and applesauce. Mix well.
  3. Combine the remainder of the dry ingredients and add to the skim milk and egg white mixture. Stir until blended and pour into a prepared pan; bake for 15 minutes, or until bread is done. Remove from oven and cool.
  4. For the stuffing: Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and sauté celery and onion until tender. Add spices; remove and put into a large bowl. Add raisins, apples, and the cornbread, crumbled.
  5. Toss with the broth and sherry and bake covered in a casserole dish previously coated with cooking spray, about 12 to 15 minutes. If the stuffing appears to dry, add more broth. Toward the end of cooking, remove cover to brown.
