I have bought some cornmeal recently & didn’t know what to do with dat... One of my friend suggested to make a corn meal cake with dat.. I very dutifully notted down the recipe from her and tried out . .believe me it came out very well.......Now I know what I'll do with all the cornmeal in my pantry!!
This is a great cake to have with tea/ coffee. when baked the outside of the cake becomes a slight bit crunchy as well. This is a nice textural change from the other super moist delicate cakes I usually make. you can decrease the amount of sugar if you want to. My friends I hope you will like this cake,.....so friends here is the recipe..
1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 cups milk
2 large eggs
1 Granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon Baking powder
Preheat oven to 350° F.
grease an 8" round or square baking pan.
In a large bowl add milk, eggs, sugar & butter. Beat well in manual beater or electric mixer until thoroughly mixed.
In a separate bowl mix corn meal , flour , salt & baking powder.
Gently incorporate the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients, until just moist.
Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan ..Add some sliced almonds or walnuts on top and bake it in the oven for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in comes out clean. Cool the cake for a good 15 minutes before slicing.
