My Mom would make fried corn cakes once in a while to serve with pinto beans. This isn't her recipe the one like she made has already been posted but this is also good. The preparation and cooking times are guess.

  1. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In separate bowl, mix milk, butter, and egg.
  3. Add milk mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.
  4. Stir in the cheese.
  5. Pour approximately 1/4 cup batter onto a lightly greased griddle or skillet; flatten batter slightly.
  6. Cook until lightly browned on both sides.
  7. If batter becomes too thick add a small amount of milk.
