Grilled Corn Cakes

Today is my youngest birthday so I decided to make a "special" breakfast this morning. The came out so well that I decided to post.
This recipe is a mixture of two that I took some of this and a little of that until I got these wonderful little guys.

The trick to these basic corn cakes is to add 1 cup of boiling water to the 3/4 cup corn meal and let them thicken before adding to the batter.

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour

1/3 cup of sugar

3/4 cup stone ground corn meal (I like whole grain)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk (or 3/4 cup milk)

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 large egg

Cook on a oiled skillet until golden brown and cooked through
These cakes are nice and sweet and light. I like to put cut up fruit and maybe some butter on
them. Yum!


  1. Those sound super tasty! I love corn in almost anything (and I love trying new pancake recipes) so... I might have to try these tomorrow!

  2. Hmmmm... Good stuff!
    Maybe even fill that occasional Breakfast for dinner urge.
    Thanks Tony!

  3. O.k. we finally made these this morning! I accidentally put in a whole cup of corn meal but they still turned out fine. In fact, they were YUMMY!

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a recipe other than cornbread that I can use my cornmeal in! I love cornbread but have been looking for other things to do with the cornmeal. Fantastically easy and good!
