Cornmeal and Cream?

r7red | Oct 3, 201111:35 PM

I recently found a recipe for basic cornmeal (not grits) that called for the addition of light or heavy cream and sugar once the cornmeal had finished cooking.

The recipe was simple enough -- mix 1 cup of fine cornmeal with 1/2 cup of water, then add to 3 cups of boiling water. Stir, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or to desired consistency. Serve piping hot with cream and sugar.

I tried it and thought it was delicious in a simplistic, rustic sort of way (i did substitute demura in place of the refined white sugar and added some fruit). I'm surprised I had never heard of this basic variation of hearty hot cereal before.

Anyone else ever give it a try or heard of cornmeal used this way? I've heard grits are more nutricious since they're processed in a way that releases more b-vitamins and/or protein, but this was a nice change of pace fo rme.

Any other cornmeal breakfast suggestions?
