This cornmeal pound cake recipe from Cleetus Friedman, City Provisions in Ravenswood, yields 18 mini cakes, or three pound cake loaves

    what you need:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 24 oz. unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 15 large eggs, beaten to blend in medium bowl
  • 3 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoon honey
  • one quart of fresh berries, sliced, optional

    how to make it work:
  • cream butter and sugar together
  • add salt, honey, & vanilla
  • add eggs, few at a time
  • add flour and cornmeal
  • fold in sliced strawberries

I like to use large muffin pans and plate them individually for dinners. You can also use loaf pans and slice the cake in individual pieces. In the summer time, throw it on the grill with some butter! bake at 375 for 20 - 25 minutes
