This sweet, yet healthy cornmeal cake is the perfect accompaniment to your summer dishes. Light and delicate with a tender crumb, you’ll love serving this cornmeal cake alongside your barbecued dishes.
To make this cornmeal cake, you’ll need the primary ingredient — cornmeal. The cornmeal not only provides the sweet and nutty flavor of cornmeal but a slightly grainy texture as well that gives cornmeal baked goods their signature appearance.
If you wanted to serve this cornmeal cake as a side dish, you can simply skip the strawberry compote and serve it right alongside a bowl of chili or some barbeque ribs. Otherwise, this cornmeal cake with strawberry compote is a sweet dessert that can be enjoyed after a savory dish.
Feel free to swap out the strawberries for other berries like blueberries or blackberries as well. Just be mindful that if you’re using a tart berry, you may want to increase the sweetener used in the compote recipe.
