A Dusted Morning
The air inside the house grew warm and tropically steamy and sweetness filled every breath.
By the first light of dawn, a snow dusted morning and syrup in the pan.
School is delayed, so a perfect time to make a special breakfast for the kids, corncakes and bacon with the first syrup of the season. The corncake recipe is passed down from my Grandfather in West Virginia.
3/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
1 cup milk
2 T. oil
1/2 tsp. salt
Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Mix in milk and oil, do not over mix. Batter should be thin, so add a little water if needed.
Fry on a hot iron skillet.You know what to serve it with, warm maple syrup!
