How'd it Taste?

bob heitkamp ce...
cornmeal is not whole grain. it is degerminated. it is the shell ground up. try this. 2 1/2 whole grain ground corn - no flour needed 1/2 cup applesauce or pureed zuchinni - no oil 1/2 tsp soda - no powder 2 eggs variations = 1 small jalepeno or chili pepper, 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, or be creative - or 1tsp vanilla or 1/2 tsp cinnamon or ? put milk in blender add pepper blend on high to puree if using pepper. add other things except flour, cheese, salt and soda. blend low 5 seconds while adding salt and soda. pour in bowl and add flour and cheese if using. add more flour or milk if needed.
Hi Bob -- Cornmeal is one of those ingredients that can be refined (degerminated) or whole, depending on how it’s been milled. This is a Bob’s Red Mill recipe and their cornmeal is whole grain, but you’re right that it isn’t completely clear in the ingredients list. I’m making that edit now. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us! Adding zucchini sounds like a great idea.
