Maple “Butter” Instructions

Corn Cake Instructions

  1. Whisk together eggs, milk substitute, and melted margarine in a medium mixing bowl, then stir in corn kernels.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the milk-corn mixture.
  3. Stir until just combined and let stand for 20 minutes in a cool place.
  4. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit in a 10-inch nonstick skillet and brown the turkey bacon strips.
  5. Drain the turkey bacon with paper towels, then transfer to a cookie sheet.
  6. Sprinkle the apple slices with cinnamon and salt.
  7. Sear the apples in turkey bacon renderings until golden brown and place them on the sheet pan with the turkey bacon.
  8. Wipe out the skillet and return to medium heat, then add just enough margarine to coat the bottom of the skillet and ladle in ¼ C corn batter.
  9. Cook for about two minutes each side, until the edges of the pancake start to brown and bubbles appear on the surface.
  10. Transfer to cookie sheet with the apples and turkey bacon. Repeat until you have a dozen corn cakes.
