Currently in Vail, CO. Currently it’s very much winter outside. Currently I’m relaxing in my hotel room ~ very much craving this Almond Cornbread Breakfast Cake. Not too sweet and sure good for ya. Have a hearty piece for breakfast, brunch or for a snack.

For a little somethin’ more….slather it with some jam & your favorite nut butter.

Please don’t forget the really strong espresso…

Milk is good too. Coconut milk, almond milk…something hot or cold to sip while you munch on breakfast cake.

Take a slice or two to go. If you don’t have almonds and almond butter try a different nut or seed.

Almond Cornbread Breakfast Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon Corn Flour
  • 1/2 cup Fine Cornmeal
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon natural Almond Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened light Coconut Milk

  • 2 teaspoons melted Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Cooking Spray

Method

    Roasted Almonds
  • Place almonds in a fry pan and roast over medium heat for a few minutes until slightly browned, toasted and fragrant. Mix frequently so they don't burn.
  • Almond Cornbread Cakes
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Spray 3 mini loaf pans with cooking spray. Place loaf pans on a baking sheet. Whisk together dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients. Combine all ingredients well to form a batter (excluding the almonds and coconut oil) Divide 1/2 of the batter evenly among the 3 loaf pans. Sprinkle 1/2 the almonds over the batter. Top each loaf pan with the rest of the batter. Sprinkle on the rest of the almonds over the cake tops. Drizzle coconut oil over all the loaves. Bake about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out crumb free.

Can’t wait to try this. Quick question: when you say corn flour, do you mean cornmeal?

Reply

25 Marla April 8, 2013 at 1:40 pm

Ginger there is actually a super fine corn flour…here is the link and I will also add it to the recipe.

This is exactly the kind of treat I craved this weekend–healthy and with almonds!–but I had no luck finding a recipe worth trying. I have homemade almond butter that is begging to be used in this cake. Can’t wait to try it–thanks for the recipe. :)

I’ve been experimenting more and more with going mostly grain free – except for corn. This would be a perfect treat, can’t wait to try it!

This is in the oven right now and I can’t wait to try it. I added a heavy dash of cinnamon (because, well, it’s delicious!) and a sprinkling of dried cherries to the almonds in the middle. I also adapted a bit more due to not having stevia, but I have high hopes…my kitchen smells yummy. :)

49 Marla April 12, 2013 at 8:12 pm

Oh great Cindy!! Sounds perfect & I love the dash of cinnamon!

I really want to make this cake but I have a strong aversion to stevia so I’m going to have to make some adjustments to make it just right

Awesome! Let me know what you do so I can share with my readers :)

54 Jennifer June 20, 2013 at 7:57 pm

I am so excited to make this loaf. But my local stores dont sell the bob’s corn flour you posted. Is masa harina an exceptable substitution? If not any suggestions? I didnt want to wait for shipping if I order online, LOL

Reply

55 Marla June 21, 2013 at 3:31 am

Hi Jennifer…..I am not sure if that is a good substitute as I have never used it. Are the ingredients the same? And the grind of the corn?

Reply

56 Sarah July 11, 2013 at 7:52 pm

Do you think this bread would freeze and travel well?

Reply

57 Marla July 11, 2013 at 8:17 pm

Not sure….
