Today was a really busy day for me. We had errands that needed to be taken care of in the morning and then our 5 year old needed to be taken to his swimming lesson. I had exactly an hour in between and knew that the Cilantro Corn Cakes were on the agenda for today. In less then half an hour start to finish these were done!
Really simple recipe to follow- and if I wasn't in a rush I probably would have even remembered the salt! All jokes aside, I realized that I forgot the salt after tasting the first batch. Luckily I had the rest of the batter waiting in nice little patties and was able to sprinkle some salt on top.
The cakes fried up in no time and stayed together very well. The texture was very nice, with a little crunch from the corn meal.
Hubs topped his cake with mascarpone cheese. As it melted into the warm cake, it made the whole combo so creamy and good.
I didn't fry up all the cakes at once. I left them covered in the fridge for later in the day.
In my opinion the batter from the fridge actually had a better texture, but that could just be me.
