Preheat oven to 400degrees
1 cup white cornmeal
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. butter, softened, or coconut oil
1/2 tsp. sugar (more if you have a sweet tooth)
1 cup boiling water.
Grease a baking sheet liberally with butter or coconut oil. Combine the cornmeal, salt, butter and sugar; mix well. Pour the boiling water over the cornmeal mixture and beat until well blended and no lumps.
Drop the batter from a tablespoon onto the baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes. Don't skimp on the baking time. These should be brown and crisp and eaten immediately. Makes 12-14.
Good with any bean recipe or for breakfast with pure maple syrup.
This is best made with freshly ground corn meal from white popcorn, but if you can't get that you can probably get a good gluten free cornmeal from your local health food store. It should contain the germ and be kept refrigerated. Yellow cornmeal will work also.
It was a cold day for Arizona. There was a little skim of ice on the cat's water dish this morning and the top of the horse troughs were slushy. Brrrr! Roxie was pouting because we penned the calves last night so Bob and Mike could brand them today, but she got to chase the neighbors dogs off, so the morning was not a complete loss for her.
