Sigh… the word itself makes me smile.

In our house, Lt. Dan is usually the head chef for breakfast. I’m in such a daze in the morning, an apple will subside, but not for Dan. He wants a full scale breakfast of eggs, bacon, hash browns, and pancakes.

Usually he settles for a self-made scrambled egg bowl topped with guacamole, salsa, and cilantro. However, on the weekends I appease him by making a big hearty breakfast fit for a king.

I love making pancakes, but can’t always handle the sugary syrup first thing in the morning. That’s where savory pancakes come in.

Who says pancakes have to be sweet?  What better complement to cheesy scrambled eggs and crispy strips of bacon than a stack of buttery savory corn cakes?

Today’s savory corn cakes are accompanied by a cool avocado cream made with Wholly Guacamole. Have you tried this stuff? So. Good.

Wholly Guacamole makes the absolute best prepackaged guacamole, from fresh hass avocados and all natural ingredients. They never add preservatives to keep the guacamole from browning. Instead they use a special high pressure packaging process so the guacamole stays airtight.

I love homemade guacamole, but Wholly Guacamole is so fresh and tasty, and so convenient to keep around.

How to Make Savory Lime Corn Cakes with Avocado Cream | #avocado #breakfast #guacamole #savory

I added fresh lime zest to the corn cake batter to accentuate the corn flavor (like in good quality tortilla chips.) Then I mixed Wholly Guacamole with sour cream to make a cool savory avocado cream sauce to top the corn cakes.

This is such a simple, but divine combination.

I could eat these every single day… Suddenly I feel inspired to make breakfast more than once a week!

Corn Cakes
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal, yellow or white
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chile powder, or paprika
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter + extra butter for the griddle
Avocado Cream
  • 7 ounce package Wholly Guacamole, or 1 cup smashed avocado
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. For the Avocado Cream: Place both ingredients in the blender. Puree until smooth, and set aside.
  2. Preheat a griddle (or large skillet) to medium heat. Then mix the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, garlic powder and chile powder together in a large bowl. Whisk in the milk, eggs, and melted butter until smooth.
  3. Butter the griddle. Using a 1/4 cup scoop, ladle the corn cake mixture onto the hot griddle. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Flip when bubbles form on the top of the corn cakes. Repeat with the remaining corn cake batter.
  4. Serve warm with a generous dollop of avocado cream.

    Those look like they’re filled with super-duper Aquacate deliciousness, for sure, buddy! I tried making them and used some corn meal that I stone ground myself (yes…I do have a millstone, it’s a family tradition). They came out pretty good – but not as amazing as these ones I ate a million years ago in Ogunquit, Maine. Now those…those were the stuff that johnnycake DREAMS are made of. A few bites in to the tasty corn cakes, and I almost felt as if I was becoming a kernel of corn, myself. YUM!

    I generally use guacamole in very traditional ways – with chips, on tacos, fajitas, or sopes. I like it on rice cakes, too.
