Chefs Tips:

  • To add a bit of heat, consider adding ¼ cup of diced green chilies or finely diced chipotle pepper to the batter.

  • Cheese lovers will like this idea! Add 1 cup of shredded pepper jack cheese to the batter. During the last 5 minutes of bake time, sprinkle on ½ cup of cheese to the top to melt.

  • Feel free to sprinkle on ½ cup of cooked bacon bits to the top to add a smokey touch if you are a bacon lover.

  • Corn cake is delicious served warm with melted challenge butter, but it is also a great side dish with a pot of hot homemade chili or your favorite barbecue!
