Since I liked these corn cakes so much that I decided to make more.
These corn cakes are so versatile, and you can’t go wrong with any filling, but this time I made two versions: mushroom and apple.
I also made two different apple versions.
One was (↑）a combination of apples, dried cranberries, and cinnamon.
The other is a combination of apples, golden raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon.
When you stuff them, you won’t be able to distinguish which was which, so I stamped with “A” for apple/cranberry, and “AW” for apple/raisin/walnuts.
They turned out great!!
This time I used corn meal as well as corn flour, which created a little more interesting texture.
I like this one a bit better, but Terry said he liked the previous one (corn flour only) better because they were a bit more moist inside.
So I guess it’s a personal preference.
These are just wonderful for any time of the day.
They freeze well, and I make extra and keep them in the freezer; they are my perfect to-go breakfast.
I bet you want to see what it looks like inside.
This is the mushroom version.
I try to stuff the filling as much as I can.
Can you see “A”?
And this one is “AW”.
I’m so glad I stamped them because we found out that I preferred “AW” and Terry preferred “A”.
I eat one of these when I want something sweet, and it’s satisfying.
These are a healthier choice when compared to other “dessert” type food, like cakes, pies, and cookies.
