This corn cake is a lovely fall recipe. It’s simple and easy and not too sweet, so it’s a great accompaniment to your morning coffee or tea or even a good dish to serve on Christmas morning. I used sprouted corn flour as well as sprouted wheat flour.
The benefits of sprouted grains are many. Unfortunately, refined and processed grains are usually stripped of their nutrients. Sprouting is a process that germinates grains, seeds or legumes which in turn makes them more easily digested and produces additional vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, vitamin B and Carotene. It helps to decrease the amount of phytic acid present in grains. Phytic acid, an enzyme inhibitor, blocks the absorption of vitamins and minerals. It can also cause poor digestion and an unhealthy gut.
You can sprout your own grains at home or buy sprouted flours online. Some people with gluten sensitivity or intolerance have said that they can tolerate breads and other recipes using sprouted flour. But please remember that everybody is different and if you are gluten intolerant consult a doctor before you try sprouted flours.
