... birthday? Blogday? Anniversary? Bloggiversary? Whatever you choose to call it, Culinary Epiphanies is one year old today! I won't go on for pages and pages, waxing poetic about the first year, the experience, what has happened, and what will happen. Instead, I will simply celebrate with cake. Of course, those of you who know me know that I am far from ordinary. So why would I just bake an ordinary cake for my blog's birthday? Instead, I made something that combines several of my favorite things: cinnamon, corn meal, and custard/pudding cake! I think that custard/pudding cakes are my new addiction (see "lime custard pudding cake" here).

Layers are always in style in my kitchen!

Cinnamon Custard Corn Bread
from "More Lean and Luscious" by Bobbie Hinman and Millie Snyder 

5-1/4 oz yellow corn meal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup minus 1 tbsp whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 egg, slightly beaten
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup margarine, melted (I used butter)
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 cups skim milk (I used 1%)

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, combine corn meal, both flours, cinnamon, and baking powder. Mix well.

In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Mix with a wire whisk until blended. Add to dry mixture. Beat with whisk until lumps are gone.

Pour into an 8-inch square glass pan (I used nonstick metal. I can't believe I don't have a square glass pan!) that has been sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray.

Bake 45 minutes, until firm.

Cool in pan.

This smelled good even as I was just starting to mix the dry ingredients. Can you imagine how good it smelled while it baked? Yum.

Now... who was supposed to bring the ice cream?!?

Honestly, though, it's a bit disappointing. It needs a lot more cinnamon to qualify as cinnamon custard corn bread. It didn't satisfy my desire for something spicy (that doesn't cost fourteen dollars a loaf!). We'll see what I can come up with tomorrow.

Ooohhh... there's a brand-new episode of Good Eats on right now. AB's gone all film-look!

Thanks, Linda. I knew we were close. Cathy is right behind us, and Alice is not far behind her. And all three of your blogs are still among my favorites, a whole year later. Long live the Summer of 2004 Blog Starters! We should probably come up with a catchier "class name," though... =)

Thank you, too, Sue! I'm glad you are enjoying the site, and I'm glad you commented -- I've meant to bookmark you for a while now, but I kept forgetting. Consider yourself marked!

Congratulations Kelli! I guess we're sort of in the same "class" - my blog birthday was two days ago! Hope you have a great second year!
