About the Author

Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. Usually the recipes on Weelicious are usually pretty spot on, but I have to say that when I made these corn cakes they came out tasting like cardboard. Is there any missing ingredients? They came out looking like pancakes, but more rough and dry as hell. Followed the recipes to the letter. Feels like it might be missing some flour or something.

  2. […] always like to try new sort of pancakes, and these caught my eye over at Weelicious. They were very tasty, especially with a little bit of maple syrup and crispy bacon. They turned […]

  3. Loved these! I’m thinking these would be great for a play date with a lot of kids. Thanks!

  4. I have to say, I totally diaserge with your assessment of the Banana Butter Scotch cake. I would honestly say, this would be listed in my top 3 of the layered cakes most likely number one. Well, that is until we break out the next chocolate cake. When is that going to be again?!

  5. I have 3 picky eaters in my house (including the hubby) and each of them dislike different things. This was a HUGE HIT for us all! My 6 y.o. daughter ate 4 and my 4 y.o. daughter ate 2. These were tasty and super easy to make. Might I add that they came together quickly and were great for a busy weeknight!

  6. My son is 15 months and going through a picky stage. Gobbled these up! I made half the batch with some ground up chick peas and an extra splash of oil for moisture, and those are perfect too.

  7. This is a twist of a latin Arepas. I mixed it with sweet corn cream and they were very good. Perfect for those days when creativity is away..

  8. Just tried these tonight. My son just turned 4 this week, and he ate most of one. I’ll consider that a hit. We served ours marinara for dipping and green beans cooked in a little olive oil and italian seasonings. I like the other comment that mentioned serving it with a bean soup. I may try that in cooler weather.
    I just found your site through a Cool Mom Picks email, and I’m so glad I did! My son’s older than I guess your original target audience is/was, but he’s so picky and these all look like great recipes.

  9. One more thing. In my opinion that there are quite a few trveal insurance web pages of respectable companies that allow you to enter your holiday details to get you the insurance quotes. You can also purchase the actual international trveal cover policy online by using your own credit card. All you need to do is always to enter your trveal particulars and you can understand the plans side-by-side. Only find the program that suits your finances and needs and then use your bank credit card to buy the idea. Travel insurance on the internet is a good way to search for a reputable company with regard to international trveal insurance. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

  10. These were awesome! I tried one without the marinara and thought it was good. But then I dipped it into the marinara…WOW!!! What a great snack this will be! My kids each ate 1/2 of one, but they were more interested in the green beans and cooked apples on their plates…go figure! :). Thanks again for this recipe!

  11. I’m making these tonight to go with our meatloaf. I just found the recipe and have just enough time before dinner to make them. Hoping they’ll go over well with my kids! Thanks for the recipe!

  12. These were great, I omitted the salt and sugar, and added some garlic powder. I was surprised when even my 1 yr old, who is very picky about texture, gobbled these up. Thanks for this delicious recipe, I will be making these again.

  13. these turned out perfect! thank you catherine for this wonderful recipe and I got my son who’s got sensory issues and is on the Autism spectrum to eat them too! hooray! I don’t see a cookbook on your site, are you coming out with one?

  14. thought you might want to label these gluten free for the gf community to find on your site 🙂 they look wonderful, i’m making them today

  15. My 2 1/2 year old loved these! I added a little garlic powder to the batter after making hers. It adds a little more flavor for my taste.

  16. I haven’t tried freezing them, but since they’re so similar to pancakes I would make up the rest and freeze them between sheets of wax or parchment paper. Whenever I make pancakes I cook up a double batch and freeze half. Then I can pop them in the toaster in the morning and my kids have fresh pancakes and I don’t have to do any work. I would think these would work similarly.

  17. what would you serve these with? i try to always give my kids a protein, veggie and starch at dinnertime. not sure what to pair this with but they sound delicious!

  18. I made these tonight for my son and he ate 1 out of 2 cakes. I consider this a success 🙂 I used goat dry jack cheese in place of parm cheese.

  19. i would like to use egg whites instead of the whole egg so there won’t be such a prominent egg flavor. How many egg whites would I use?

  20. […] over to one of my favorite kid-food sites Weelicious for this simple and fun recipe for Italian Parmesan Corn Cakes for the kiddos! They look delicious, […]

  21. We have egg allergies too, and since this recipe calls for just one egg, you might be able to replace it with a combo of oil, water and baking powder. I’ve seen several variations, but two common replacement ratios for one egg are:

    2 and 1/2 TBL water
    2 and 1/2 TBL oil
    1 and 1/2 TBL baking powder


    2 TBL water
    1 TBL oil
    2 tsp baking powder

    I’m not sure which would work better in the recipe. You might have to experiment. Mix the oil water and baking powder together seperately and stir until it fizzes. Add it as the last ingredient, stir, and start using the batter immediately. The mixture loses its rising ability rather quickly so you can’t store unused batter. Hope this helps!

  22. Kate’s Mom:
    Have you tried the eggless pancake recipe (“no yolking around pancake”) from The Petit Appetit cookbook? It’s delicious and nutritious, and may be an option for your little one.

  23. My daughter has an egg allergy which has unfortunately limited our pancake eating. Any suggestions for tweaks to the recipe to eliminate the egg and still make it fluffy and taste good?

  24. You can get a dairy free, soy based Parmesan cheese. I have found it at our local health food store. I have a friend who can’t have dairy and I have used it in recipes for her, specifically a risotto. MIght want to check it out!

  25. Sounds delicious!! For a dairy free version, would you sub something for parmesan, or just leave it out? I would sub plain soy milk for milk.

  26. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or shemtoing. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back..

  27. I want to try these with my Tuscan Bean Soup! I think they will make it magical!! Yummy

  28. i love this recipe! I’ll be getting my little lady into her apron to make it tomorrow!

    I wanted to let you know I’ve featured you here: http://wp.me/p1sq38-ax

    Thanks so much for a great meal!

  29. Good call! I served them as plain pancakes to a 1 & 2yr old and had no luck. Once I added marinara and a little melted cheese – they were gobbled up. I was afraid I’d struck out, but your suggestion saved this recipe!! A good option for a quick meal for the wee-ones. Thanks!

  30. That’s how I always make this!
    My 21 month son loves it and gobbles it up.

  31. These look great! I might try to put a little marinara and parmesan on them and broil them for a minute for mini pizzas. Thank you for sharing!
