Corn Cakes and Soup for Supper

Martha White®Nashville, TN – A big bowl of hearty soup for supper is a comforting and satisfying way to end the day. But to complete the meal, nothing goes with soup better than cornbread. You almost can’t go wrong with your favorite cornbread – a cast iron skillet full of hot cornbread, tender corn muffins or crispy corn sticks.

“However, sometimes we forget that you don’t even have to heat up the oven to have delicious corn bread,” observed the Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “Corn cakes are quick and easy to make. All you have to do is stir up the batter and bake on a griddle or in a skillet like pancakes.”

Like other cornbreads, corn cakes may be made from a basic recipe – just plain good corn flavor, crisp and delicious. Or you may add other ingredients to suit your taste or complement the soup you are serving. Among the most popular cornbread variations are those that incorporate Tex-Mex flavors, by adding corn, cheese and mild or hot peppers.

This super easy recipe for Mexi Corn Cakes uses a few simple ingredients and tastes delicious with a creamy tomato or potato soup, bean soup or traditional vegetable soup.
