From Scratch Snacks: Corn Cakes

You know I love my muffin tops around here!  The latest we tried were these sweet and yummy Corn Cakes.  This is one easy after school snack that also accompanies chili and soup quite nicely! 
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup unbleached flour
1/3 cup organic sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup almond milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a large bowl, mix together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add egg, oil and milk.
On a greased cookie sheet, spoon batter (I used medium scoop) onto baking pan
Bake for 12-15 minutes

You could also try adding 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese and some chopped jalepenos if you are feeling...spicy!  Simple, economical and yummy!

  1. Have you have gotten those corn cakes in the store? They come in different flavors like blueberry and such? I wonder if these would taste like them - I used to love them when I was younger but haven't had them for ages

  5. I think I'm going to have to try this recipe! I usually don't buy almond milk, have you used cow's milk in the past? Thanks!
