Cornbread Griddle Cakes

Don't get confused and buy a cornbread mix; it won't work in this recipe. If you're out of time, buy cornbread muffins from the deli. Split them in half from top to bottom; use each half in place of one cake.

Prep Time:


  • 2 cups yellow self-rising cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper


  1. 1. Stir together all ingredients just until moistened. Pour 2 Tbsp. batter for each cake onto a hot, greased griddle or large nonstick skillet. Cook cakes 2 to 3 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look dry and cooked; turn and cook other side (about 2 minutes).
  2. Note: To make ahead, place cooked griddle cakes on baking sheets. Cover and chill up to 24 hours. To reheat, bake at 300° for 8 to 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately.
