Italian Parmesan Corn Cakes

My little one is officially a toddler, which comes with a few little “challenges” such as the beginnings of temper tantrums and the picky eater stage, which I hope does not get much worse than what it is right now. She no longer wants to eat anything that has lumps of any shape or form. I made some fruit puree and she wont’ eat that either. She rarely eats bananas anymore, and I have no idea why. I tried making her rice pudding but that was a definite no go. Little Graduates mac and cheese was also wholeheartedly rejected. A while back I discovered and thought the recipes looked simple and yummy so I saved a bunch to try later, including this one for Italian Parmesan Corn Cakes. To be safe, I only added 1/2 tsp of herbs and the rest I made as directed. These little cakes turned out perfectly, and best of all, my 19 month old loves them! She even stole a bit off of mine when I wasn’t looking! lol This recipe makes a lot – about 16, 1 tbsp sized cakes. Miss M is a nibbler so she only eats 2 at a time for now. I ate 4 and they were filling.

Update: Baby will only eat them, fresh out of the pan, she won’t eat leftovers! lol
