Corn Cake Pizza

March 12, 2010

When I gave up bread (which includes wraps, pita bread, and pizza dough) for lent I thought it wouldn’t be that hard. This was the biggest sacrifice for me! I love doughy carbs so much and I can’t wait until Easter.

In the mean time, Heather and Angela have provided refuge in the form of humnut pancakes!

I like pancakes, but I love corncakes! I saw cornbread pancakes on Iowa Girl’s blog, and I got the biggest craving!

You see, as a child I ate my own weight in corn toasties. (Does anyone else love those?) These taste just like corn toasties, and I love the memories it brings back!

I used predominantly oat bran flour with some corn meal, baking powder for leavening and one egg. It worked out perfectly!

Humnut Corncakes

Corncake

  • 3 tbsp oat bran flour or spelt flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp (heaping) corn meal
  • 1/2 packet stevia or 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Water to thin

Toppings

  • 2-3 tbsp sauce of your choice (it doesn’t need to be thick this time, the corncake won’t get soggy!)
  • Drizzle of tahini

Humnut Cheese

  • 1.5 tbsp roasted artichoke pepper and garlic hummus
  • 1.5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Water to thin

Mix all dry pancake ingredients, then whisk in the egg and enough water to thin to to pancake batter consistency.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium flame and grease with a spray of oil. Pour the batter into the pan and cook for about 4 minutes. Flip.

Add pizza toppings to the cooked half, then place pizza under broiler for 3 minutes to crisp the cheese.

Cut and serve!! Mmm

I have been so miserable since the weekend. I have no idea why! There isn’t anything tragic going on in my life, I just can’t shake the blues!

I treated my mini depression with some shopping therapy today. Does anyone else love Marshall’s? It’s filled with designer clothes, and the clearance items are awesome! My jeans were $16, I bought a designer shirt for $15, a sweater for $15 and a pair of shoes for $30! This is the first time I’ve been shopping for clothes since… mid summer maybe? I don’t usually buy things for myself so today was fun.

I also found my prom dress!! It’s grey and silver with crystals. Here it is in purple:

Hopefully I’ll rock it? (hahaha I feel like such a dork saying that!!)

Oooh, congrats to the Eggplant Executrix on finishing her law review! You’re awesome!

Hope everyone has a great night!!!

    *You’RE going to look beautiful. Hate that grammatical error. 🙂

  13. March 12, 2010 9:20 pm

    What a GORGEOUS dress. You’ll look absolutely beautiful in it, I can’t wait to see pictures! I miss prom dress shopping 😦 Have a great friday!!

    I’m pretty sure your humnut sauce would taste good on anything, even my foot, so I’m sure these corn cakes are delicious! I recently made your humnut pizza and it was glorious!

  15. March 12, 2010 11:21 pm

    This looks amazing! I’m going to try making a sweet version. 🙂

  16. March 13, 2010 12:34 am

    I’ve found corncakes here in Seattle but haven’t had them in a long while! Used to LOVE them!!! Will have to try your recipe this weekend, without the sugar. Yum!

    I have soy flour to use up – wonder if it will work. Might be doing a little experimenting.

    That dress is STUNNING. Can’t wait to see pics! Who’s your date? 😉

  17. March 13, 2010 5:45 am

    You are SO SWEET! Thank you for the shout-out! And the dress is divine.

    I know what you mean about the ‘blues,’ I ‘ve been the same way the last couple days for no apparent reason (is the moon is some strange position? haha). I love this recipe (I currently have a major humnut obsession!), and your dress is lovely!

    Mmm I love cornbread…not sure if it’s the color or that it just tastes so comforting. I’m surprised your ‘corncake’ got so big. Giving up bread for Lent must have been really, really hard…I would have failed midway through Ash Wednesday.

  20. March 13, 2010 8:05 pm

    Mae you are going to look amazing and beautiful in that dress!!!!!! It is so pretty!! love it!!!!!!!!

    Your cornbread pizza looks fab!!!!

    Good for you for doing so well with giving up breads for lent!!!

    Your dress is so pretty! Im so glad you finally found yours 🙂

  22. March 16, 2010 4:07 am

    Wow, you are a genius… those corn cakes look fantastic, as usual. And what a great idea. So creative.

    That prom dress is beautiful, by the way! So exciting!
