Are you guys ready for a sweet and savory out of the box recipe? I’ve recently become familiar with Stone Wall Kitchen’s pancake mix so when I saw the cornbread mix during my weekly grocery shopping spree at *Milk and Eggs, I had to have it. I really enjoy a good cornbread and thought, let me come up with something creative and fun that makes cornbread the star of the show and not a side. This one’s a tasty winner and I’m lovingly calling them CORNY CAKES!
The cupcake size is great if you want to serve 2-3 corny cakes per person but after testing and exceeding the appropriate portion amount hahaha, I would recommend using a muffin tin and making one big muffin filled corny cake per person. These corny cakes are easy to make and you can always play with ingredients for the sloppy joe mix. I like incorporating Asian flavors wherever I can and that’s not just because I’m half Vietnamese but I have a fridge and pantry full of spicy sweet sauces, so I used hoisin sauce mixed with some of the ketchup to make the sloppy joe sauce. Again, play with your food and experiment with different flavors. The only thing that can go wrong is you have to make another batch.
