Corn cakes on the griddle
Corn cakes on the griddle

Oh, my goodness!! These were amazing.  I haven’t had corn cakes in ages.  When I make pot roast I love to have with it, but during the summer I hate to heat up the kitchen.  So last week when I made pot roast I got the brilliant idea to try and make GF, DF corn cakes and they were a HUGE success.


1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 Tablespoons sugar (optional)
3/4 cup corn meal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened so delicious coconut)
1/4 cup oil
1 egg


Combine dry ingredients, whisk to combine. Set aside.

In a larger bowl combine milk, oil and egg and beat well.  Add dry ingredients and mix until it mostly lump free.

Cook on greased, hot griddle.

This made approximately 20-2inch corn cakes.
