    The recipe combines my favorite flavors of our sultry, so-hot-you-peel-off-your-clothing Alabama summers: okra, tomatoes, corn, basil, and a personal staple, pimento cheese. Make your own pimento cheese. I love how the cheese starts to melt when it hits the hot cake. It's so important to assemble these right away, when the corncake is still hot and crispy. I thought these were summer on a plate. Delicious.

    An easy recipe to modify. I will add more veggies and onions next time. I didn't have regular cornmeal so I used self-rising cornmeal. I definitely had to add water to the batter. This was yummy with the cheese added.

    More time consuming than I thought, the cornmeal cakes didn't look anything like the picture but they tasted great! Love the combination of flavors .. even the okra!
