Corn Cakes


Corn meal makes some deliciously cheap breakfasts. From corn meal mush, to coffee cake, to corn cakes!

Corn Cakes
1 1/4 cups corn meal
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten

Sift together dry ingredients. Add egg and milk and mix just until combined.

Cook like pancakes on a hot, lightly greased griddle or skillet, until golden brown, turning once.

These were good with butter and syrup, but when I added some freezer peach jam, they were really good! I didn't get pics of the cakes with jam, because by the time I added it, the plate was all messy. But it sure tasted great.

Sounds very good, I'll have to give these a try. I also like to use cornmeal for polenta. If you've not tried this you are in for a big treat.

Mmm, I love cornmeal pancakes! Those look good. I like how thick they are. Perhaps I'll make some real soon!
