What you can do with a $6.25 box of cornmeal.

Cornmeal muffins
Ingredients:
3/4 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup self-raising flour
Pinch of salt
Vanilla essence
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup sugar
Mix all ingredients together, pour into muffin moulds and bake at 200deg for 20mins. 
Cornmeal Pancakes
Ingredients:
3/4 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup self-raising flour
Pinch of salt
Vanilla essence
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups skim milk
1/4 cup sugar
Mix all ingredients together and fry till both sides are golden brown 
Cornmeal pancakes and muffins are essentially the same thing, except that the former has the addition of skim milk. That’s all. They even taste suspiciously alike. 
Cornmeal mush is basically just cornmeal+water, cooked over a fire until glutinous and translucent. It can be used as:
  • Porridge substitute with your favourite pork floss etc
  • Breakfast cereal substitute. Tastes great with brown sugar.
  • Chilled till hard, sliced and pan fried. Delicious both sweet and savoury 
  • As a thickener in fruit smoothies (this is hypothetical, I haven’t tried it yet) 
Cornmeal rocks. Apparently it’s really cheap too. $6.25 for about 500g is actually on the expensive side :O 
On a side note, this blog is exactly a month old! Check out the newly updated
