These corn cakes go really well with the spicy beans.
* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup yellow corn-meal
* 1 Tbs. baking powder
* 1 tsp. salt
* 1 cup water
Heat up the griddle. Mix the dry ingredients together. Stir in the water. Mix well until there are no lumps in the batter. When the griddle is hot (a drop of water dances on the hot surface), pour the batter out to form 4 or 5" cakes. When they are done on the bottom, flip them over and continue cooking. They will be yellow, not browned. This will make 7 or 8 cakes, depending on size.
While your cakes are cooking, open up a can of your favorite spicy beans, or chili beans or baked beans and heat them up.
When the corn cakes are done, remove to a platter and pour the hot beans over the tops of the cakes. Sprinkle with a little chopped onion, if you like. Enjoy! You can have dinner on the table in about ten minutes! (no sugar, eggs, egg-sub, vinegar or baking soda in the recipe.)
