I appreciate everyone’s support on my last post, which as you might notice was quite a while ago compared to my regular posting schedule. With busy (and long) work days I decided to take an impromptu blog break. Although I can’t say I am entirely rested and now miraculously have tonnes of free time for blogging, I just had to come back from my blog break because there were just too many recipes I wanted to share!
The first one being broccoli cheddar corn cakes, made just like you would make a regular pancake.
Broccoli and Cheddar Corn Cakes
•1/2 cup steamed broccoli tips
•2 tbsp course ground corn meal
•1 tbsp unsweetened whey protein powder
•1 tbsp coconut flour
•1/4 tsp baking soda
•1/4 tsp baking powder
•1/4 cup egg whites
•30g shredded old cheddar cheese
•2 tbsp almond milk
•1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
•salt, Italian seasoning
1)Steam broccoli well enough so that it can be mashed with a fork
2)Mash broccoli tops (not stems), add in all dry ingredients, mix
3)Add in wet ingredients, saving the apple cider vinegar for last
4)Pour them on to the pan and make yourself some corn cakes
This recipe takes a bit more time then some pancakes because you have to steam the broccoli before you even start making up the batter for the pancakes.
The corn cakes are high in protein and relatively low carb. They have a higher fat content because of the cheddar cheese, however you can try using reduced fat cheese if you are worried.
These are slightly on the salty side, but full of flavour. They don’t need to be topped with anything because they are quite flavourful on their own.
These are more on the crunchy side for a regular pancake, because of using course ground cornmeal. The cakes get nicely firm and solid (rather than some pancakes that are floppy)
The batter is thick, so you will want to spread it on the pan with the back on your spoon to even it out.
P.S – You should know, the number of times I initially misspelled broccoli in this post is embarrassingly ridiculous. You should also know that in writing that last sentence I misspelled: mispelled, brocolli, embarrasingly, and ridicolous. I think I need to go back to grade school.
-*-*-*-*-When you are making pancakes, do you most often make single serving recipes, or recipes for multiple people? How is your spelling, are there certain words you always misspell?
