Corn Muffins and Pancakes
Ok Ok, so here it goes.
1) Commercial corn muffins taste more like corn then mine, I use stone ground cornmeal and yet a cheap box of mix taste more corn like then mine. .... type of corn, (ground popcorn maybe??)
Limed corn which health wise is better in some ways to regular, tastes crappy, I do not eat nacho's I want oily Evil Salty American corn chips, they taste better.
Taste is subjective , but for me Frito's beats every truly Mexican Nacho Chip I have ever had. When I buy them, I admonish all, to eat ALLL the Nacho's first, then I will share, if not , they eat mine then eat theirs!
WHY? and a recipe please.
2) Pancakes, same issue, what makes simple white flour pancakes from a box almost universally taste the same. I almost never make them, but on rare occasion I want to. Normally I sorta follow Betty Crocker's recipe, and add some corn/oatmeal/whole wheat /rye/millet.
Years ago I added powdered dairy whey and that was great, but, it was not a panacea. (plain dairy whey, not body builder stuff that has a lot of additives.
I am convinced it is a flavorant, but it could be a vitamin.
I hope there is someone who can help!
