Servings 15 slices


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cups Corn Meal
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
  • 6 Tablespoons Water
  • 1/2 Cup Applesauce
  • 2 Cups Milk or Almond Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a 9 x 13 inch cast iron pan.
  • Place pan into the oven while preparing ingredients—no longer than 6-8 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.
  • Add wet ingredients to large bowl of dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
  • Remove hot pan from oven and pour batter into the pan. It will immediately begin to cook the edges to provide a perfectly toasted crust. 
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cut two lines down and 4 lines across. Serve with butter and honey. Devour!


I grind my own wheat and always use White Winter wheat berries when baking this recipe.
