What would you make if you had to use canned corn, pears, and Mike and Ikes in one recipe? Strange mix of ingredients right! Well this month the Kosher Connection asked us to do just that. At first we were told to use all three ingredients, but a while later they changed it to two out of three. I had long decided what I was going to make so just jumped in and went with it.
The cornbread recipe I use calls for a can of corn that is pureed which adds some sweetness and moistness to the dish. I used that recipe but instead of baking it like a classic cornbread I made them pancake style and topped them with sauteed pears sweetened with Mike and Ikes. The results was actually not all that bad! Since I usually do not bake with much sugar though, the topping was a tad too sweet for me, so only add a few Mike and Ikes if you don’t want it super sweet.
