Sweet & Spicy Corncakes

Sweet & Spicy Corncakes printPrint Recipe

  • 1 box TJ's Cornbread Mix
  • 1 cup TJ's 2% Milk
  • 1 large TJ's Egg
  • 1 cup TJ's Corn and Chile Tomato-less Salsa
  • 3/4 cup TJ's Grape Seed Oil, separated
  • TJ's Cayenne pepper, to taste

Place cornbread mix in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg and 1/2 cup of oil, then add to cornbread mix. Beat together until smooth, then fold in the corn salsa and allow batter to rest for about 30 minutes. Heat griddle to medium-low and brush with oil. Use a small scoop or 1/4-cup measure to pour cornbread batter onto the griddle (just like pancakes). When edges start to bubble, carefully use a spatula to loosen; when edges fully release, flip cakes and cook until golden. Serving Suggestions: Enjoy these corncakes like a tortilla for a tasty fish taco (as pictured with battered fish nuggets, cabbage slaw, cilantro salad dressing and salsa garnish); top with you favorite chili, sour cream, shredded cheese & green onions; or serve them alongside chicken breakfast sausage and scrambled eggs and salsa.
