cooling Corn Toaster Cakes on wire rackThis is a real NY and surrounding area treat that is hard to find nowadays. It costs about $4 for each pack of 4 when you can find them. This recipe makes 12 for a fraction of the price. The muffin top pans can be used for many other things, and will pay for themselves very quickly, as these breakfast cakes are delicious, and you will be making them often!


Some people toast them. They are the perfect size for a 2 or 4-slice toaster. I microwave them for a few seconds, or eat them at room temperature. Enjoy with butter, jam or as is.

These can be frozen if cooled completely and wrapped well with wax or parchment paper separating the cakes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10-12 minutes

Thank you for the recipe! I love these, and you are correct; they can be difficult to find. There was a bakery in Cleveland called Hough Bakery that always had them but they closed long ago.

In the early 1980s Howard Johnsons used to make Corn Toasties that were sold in the freezer section. They were great, toasted in the toaster.


My Mom, Grandmother and I loved them. There not made anymore, so I hope these in my just ordered pan will come close.

They should. Just take your regular blueberry muffin recipe and maybe reduce the amount because regular muffins are larger. Use the same temperature and bake for maybe 10 - 12 minutes.
