Polenta Cake

Polenta Cake


1 ½ C Polenta (used Bob’s Red Mill organic polenta)

4 ½-5 C water

1-2 Tbl butter or goat butter*, or Melt (DF butter alternative)

¼ C Pecorino Romano, grated  alternative non-dairy cheese or nutritional yeast (optional)

½ Tsp Celtic Sea Salt add up to 1 tsp. if omitting the pecorino cheese

Note: Another option is to add fresh corn kernels at the end of cooking. Stir them in before it solidifies.



Bring water to a boil. Add salt to the water. Slowly whisk in the polenta.

Continue to stir as the polenta comes to a boil and then starts to become like porridge. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes or until it tastes done (no longer gritty).

Butter or grease a pie plate with coconut oil . Pour polenta into the pie plate and let cool. As it cools, about 10 minutes, it becomes firm. Let rest until ready to serve.
