Corn Cakes with Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

These vegan corn cakes make the perfect easy brunch treat and they happen to be gluten free and vegan but you would never guess by tasting them!  Here they are topped off with a seasonal strawberry rhubarb compote, which I should mention is also delicious over ice cream!

  1. In a medium saucepan, toss together the berries, rhubarb, and sugar, and cook over medium heat until the berries are starting to fall apart.  Add the cornstarch and lemon juice mixture, stirring constantly and cook just until thickened.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all corn cake ingredients until just blended.
  3. To cook, preheat oven to 110 degrees. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the batter in 1/4 cup amounts (I did 3 at a time, but it depends on your pan), and let cook for about 2-3 minutes on the first side until set and starting to brown, then flip with a spatula, and cook another 2-3 minutes.
  4. When cooked, place on a plate and keep warm in the oven while you repeat the process with the remaining corn cakes.
  5. Serve the corn cakes topped with the compote.
