pssssst! brainfag is retired! i'm now at


Breakfast Corncakes

posted in Food on January 24, 2005

I've been eating these for the last two weeks, and after subjecting five others to my obsession yesterday, I was asked the recipe. Be careful, they're addictive!


The main inspiration for these was realizing my body's taken a sudden violent dislike to wheat: fun! I'm sure you can substitute any sort of flour to complement the cornmeal, but brown rice flour is actually quite tasty, if not a bit more expensive than the ol' wheat standby. I only recently experimented with making these vegan (substituting psyllium for egg), so it may be tweaked a bit as I continue to eat them EVERY GODDAMN MORNING, fine-tuning my flatcake masterpiece. The recipe's for 2 people, double if you need more.Golly it's corncakes for breakfast again

  • 1/2 cup cornmeal or masa flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1-1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 tbsp cup oil
  • 2 tbsp cup honey
  • 1 egg (or 1 tbsp psyllium husk+2 tbsp wa-wa)

Mix dry. Mix Wet. Bring them to a loving harmony, but don't overmix fool! Fry in oil on very hot cast iron! Eat with maple syrup!

Don't be afraid kids. I swear I'm not trying to poison you. The fact that you're reading a recipe on a website called brainfag shouldn't frighten you in the least. Go ahead. Whip it up. There's nothing to worry about.

Now timmy, be careful not to mix the baking powder with the psyllium husk! Besides creating a deadly weapon to any unsuspecting colon, you might spill it on your sweater and make a terrible stain.

Golly gee, Mister Wizard how did you get so smart? Did you know if you mix brake fluid and chlorine it's flammable?

Maybe your next comic shouldn't be fiction or autobio... it should be a cooking comic. Like you're Julia Child or something. Nate "Iron Chef" Buasky-Fag. DO IT!

Mmmm. As one of the Breakfast Club Five who was subjected to these so-called "corn-cakes," I can attest to the yummyness of 'em. Good stuff. Addictive, even.
