Corn Pie or Málé
Today I'm going to show you a dessert that my grandmother used to make for us. The Hungarian name of the dessert is málé or kukoricamálé. I don't have her recipe unfortunately, as she knew the ingredients without a written recipe and she had never written it down. For this occasion I had to look for a recipe on the internet and thank God, there are plenty out there to choose from. You just have to type the name of the dish into the magical search box and you're flooded with recipes, one better than the other.
So this dessert is as old as the last century and it was the food or poor. Back in those days poor people had corn as that has been a staple food for ages and with a few ingredients, corn was turned into a dessert. Today it is used by those who'd like a gluten free dessert.
To be honest, I only started to make this corn pie because a few years ago my niece was recommended gluten free diet and with that, you don't have many options for a healthy dessert. Luckily she loved it and I'm making this for her every time she asks me to and for the whole family actually as it's a delicious one.
This is an upgraded recipe, compared to what my grandmother used to make us. This has cherry in it as well, as adding some fruits, especially sour is always a good idea.
The original recipe is from here and please note, I doubled the quantity as it was for a family event.
- 600g corn flour,
- 2 packets of baking powder,
- 200ml sunflower oil,
- 450g sugar (would have been 500g but it seemed too much and honestly 400g would have been fine),
- 400ml milk (1.5% fat),
- 6 eggs,
- 2 pckets of vanilla sugar(this wasn't part of the original recipe),
- sour cherries (this wasn't part of the original recipe either),
- sugar for powdering. source
The method is pretty simple, all you need is a mixing bowl and a mixer.
Beat the eggs with sugar and vanilla sugar, till it becomes white. Add the oil, mix well, then add the milk as well. Mix the baking powder with the corn flour and slowly add to the mix. Add a pinch of salt as well.
I'm always using baking paper, so I lined my baking tray with paper and poured the mix into it. The added the cherries on top. Unfortunately all of the cherries sank as soon as I dropped them into the mix, but that's not a problem, doesn't change anything.
I then preheated the oven to 180C, baked it for 20 minutes, then reduced the heat to 150C and baked for another 30 minutes, till the top became golden brown.
I'm against powdering the top of cakes with sugar as I'm trying to make healthy desserts and adding more sugar to it doesn't make it healthy at all.However, for the sake of the photo, I powdered one piece 😜
The original recipe says you can serve it with jam as well, but I didn't as it has sour cherry in it.
Soooo, who wants a piece of corn pie? 😏

I don't know why grandma's meals taste greater. Most of the recipes I enjoy are from my grandma.
I'm sure I really want to have a taste of this corn pie 🥧.
Childhood memories. That's what you got used to as a kid and those early memories are strong. You can try this at home as it's simple, with just a few ingredients.
Yes, I love trying new things.
I want a piece with a scoop of vanilla ice cream next to it wooo it would be great at this time in my country it's 3 pm snack time and I don't have anything sweet at home, send me a virtual piece to share yummmmm Erika. I'm going to save the recipe and I love it because of the easy ingredients (there are not so many).
🤣 Open the window as one piece is on its way 😂
Try it out one nice day. You won't regret it.
Thanks, Erika it tasted like yummy that piece of virtual cake, I'm going to try to make it as similar to your recipe as possible...❤️🍩
Hi @erikah! This recipe attracted me, as soon as I saw the picture. It looks very provocative. I will be making it at my house soon. I love to know recipes from the grandmothers of the world. Thanks for sharing.
Hello there. It can be provocative for sure, just wait till you taste it. Grandmothers knew a lot 🙂
SIt seems that you found the right recipe, the dessert looks very delicious, the recipe alone is certainly not enough if you do not have expertise in this area, I am amazed by you who have a lot of talent😊
I admit that a little experience won't hurt, but this is a simple recipe with just a few ingredients.
I wouldn't call this talent, maybe experience.
Yaa, that's also true, there will be no results without experimentation 😊

It looks really great. With the voila detail, I can't say no to that. Who can say no to a delicious cake? It's so weird to me that people used to be able to randomize recipes beyond measure. When I ask my mom for a recipe for something, I ask her how much oil to use and she says a little bit. What do you mean by a little bit haha?
Lol, I almost forgot the voila at the end, but the bell always rings in my head, telling me Incublus is watching.
I know what you mean and trust me, I was talking about this with my brother. We both cook and bake, he's excellent at both and we agreed that some things you need to practice and after years, you just know.

I'm a fan of deserts and I'm really glad that I get to read this kind of blogs that you share to us.
This one is simple yet very presentable desert. Very doable also with the ingredient you presented.
I'm sure this one tastes delicious and I'm craving now 😁.
I like to share simple recipes as you can get a lot of complicated ones on the internet. I wish I could send you a piece for tasting :)
Oh how I wish we are just neighbors hihi..😊
Wow, looks yummy and it's easy to prepare, I remember my childhood days, we always had corn flour, the simplest preparation I know is, toast with little sugar and it's ready to eat.
Yes, it is an easy recipe and delicious too. I'm glad to hear you had corn flour when you were younger, that means you know a dish r two :)
I just found out only this time that it can be made into a pie. the only thing I know how to cook is toast. Thank you for sharing.

"kukoricamálé", that´s interesting :) In my language, corn is "kukuřice" and "malé" means "little" but unlike with many other desserts and meals you have shared with us before, this one is not familiar to me. In fact, corn flour is not used very often in Czech cuisine. But it looks very good ;)
That's interesting. We have the usual "puliszka" or "mamaliga" in Romanian, which is polenta in Italian, but that's not sweet :)
Found it.. Gluten-free indeed.. But sometimes, the flour produced by factories producing gluten can be mixed with gluten too.. The glutinous rice flour I bought in the market has gluten, lol...it's really better to make it at home using grinder just to make sure there isn't gluten...
I saved this 😊
Well, I don't know about that but if you have a solution, then go for it. The recipe is good, I can assure you, so if you can find gluten free corn, don't hesitate to try it out :)
