I am impressed at the number of books, Donna Hay, has written. I have been reading two of her books with great pleasure. I have been putting stickies on the recipes I like and I found a number that sound like something for our table.
For my first recipe (not my first Donna Hay recipe), I chose a simple corn cake from Modern Classic, Book 1. The book has many photos and they are plated nicely and feel comfortable. Some books beautify their dishes and the surrounding area so, it feels like it doesn't belong in my house. Her food is often on a plain white background and stands out beautifully, simple in design.
I was interested in these corn cakes because they have Cheddar cheese in them. I usually make mine without any dairy products. It also has bacon which I can't use because I am kosher. I substituted some olive oil to cook the corn cakes in.
I did not like, the set-up of the recipe, since the flour and baking powder were separated by several ingredients and I ended up, missing it completely.
