From Shopping Cart to Kitchen


What Thanksgiving dish made it onto your dining room table this year? Was it something new that stole the show? Or was this year simply traditional?

For my family, it is always turkey and all the trimmings. Additional to the food-filled weekend, I baked a new dish of my own. One that my family has never prepared before, but was still a common dessert for the season.


It is crumbly, a little sweet, moist, with a similar consistency to any other loaf or baked bread.

The recipe I used was from Paula Deen.

The link to the recipe is here:

The ingredients are as follows:

-Cornmeal (I used Quaker Oats brand)

-All-purpose flour


-Baking Powder

-Baking Soda


-Unsalted butter (I used salted butter)

-Buttermilk (Buy cultured)


The process to bake is very easy and simple, a nice break from all the work holiday dishes usually require. In total, this dessert was made within 40 minutes, including the preparation stages and gathering of ingredients.

To start, all dry ingredients are added into one bowl and mixed. All wet ingredients are added into another bowl and mixed, before both blends are combined. Then, all ingredients are added into an eight inch baking dish and tossed into the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

Don’t let the word “corn” form a bad taste in your mouth before trying it. The dish is typically lighter in taste and has no trace of vegetable.

Enjoy it plain or with some butter!
