INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 stick (100 g) butter
  • 1 cup (2.5 dl) sugar

  • 2 cups (5 dl) cornmeal

INSTRUCTIONS :

  • Set the oven to 350°F (175°C).

Caramel – Replace half the sugar with brown sugar and sprinkle more brown sugar on top before baking.

Rustic – Mix corn kernels (a small can/about one cup) into the batter.
