The only place I’m impulsive is at the grocery store. If it looks good, it usually makes it into my cart. I always go with a list but for some reason I can’t leave beautiful berries, perfect greens, or sometime even fresh heads of garlic at the store.
Trying to figure out how to use it all keeps me busy, as if I needed something else to do. Last week I was pondering the fate of berries nearly past their prime and these individual cornmeal cake was born.
Cornmeal is one of my favorite ways to add interest to dessert. For me, there’s something comforting in the smell of cornmeal baking, something grounding in each toothsome bite.
Light, moist, sweet and tangy with a slightly crunchy crust, these babies have a little bit of summer in every bite. The honey is from one of the co-producers in my CSA, Dessert Creek Honey, right here in North Texas. It feels good knowing where my food comes from.
What have you been doing with your summer produce?
