Corn Cake with Dried Cranberries

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST

Marcia Kiesel serves this subtly sweet, fruit-studded skillet cake at breakfast, as a snack and even as a rustic dessert.

  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup stone-ground cornmeal
  3. 3 tablespoons (packed) light brown sugar
  4. Salt
  5. 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped dried cranberries
  6. 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  7. 3/4 cup milk
  8. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  9. Softened unsalted butter and maple syrup, for serving
  1. In a bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Stir in the cranberries. In another bowl, mix the egg with the milk and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and stir gently just until combined; do not overmix.
  2. In an 8- or 9-inch skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil until shimmering. Scrape the batter into the skillet, smoothing the surface. Cover partially and cook over moderately low heat until the corn cake has browned on the bottom and bubbles have formed on the surface, about 5 minutes. Using a large metal spatula, transfer the cake to a dinner plate. Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Gently invert the cake into the skillet, partially cover and cook until the cake is just cooked through and the top springs back when lightly pressed, about 5 minutes longer. Serve hot, with butter and maple syrup.
