Corncakes W/Corn and Bacon

hello. here is a recipe my family loves. my mom added wheat germ to pancake and waffle batter, bread dough, pie crust and biscuits, it gives a nice nutty flavor and adds some health benefits but you can leave it out. just be sure to add back that amount of flour. we eat these for breakfast, lunch or dinner. i hope you enjoy.


Corncakes W/ Corn and Bacon

1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/4 cups flour - less 1 TBSP.
1 TBSP. Wheat germ
1 tsp. sugar
2 TBSP. melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (8.50 oz) can corn drained
Bacon - fried , drained, and chopped - to taste
Vanilla or maple flavor- to taste (start with 1 tsp)

Mix dry ingredients together in small bowl. Mix wet ingredients in large bowl. Add dry to wet and stir just to combine. Add corn and bacon to batter. DO NOT OVER MIX (it will be lumpy). Add extra flour if needed to make a thick batter. If batter is to thick thin with milk. Use batter for pancakes or waffles.

The Elvis peanut butter, banana and bacon.

when the girls were little i would mash the ripe banana with the peanut butter, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of wheat germ then make the sammie and sometimes i added jelly.
