Our recipe for polenta cakes and red fruit compote

Did you know that you can make biscuits with cornmeal, in other words polenta? It is semolina that has flavor and can also replace wheat flour – at least partially – in many recipes. Widely used in Italy and now everywhere in Europe, it has certain advantages, such as being gluten-free. It is also a good source of vitamin B3, which aids in the metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates. In our recipe, polenta mixed with corn flour makes it possible to get original and very crispy biscuits.
