Yellow Split Pea Cornmeal Griddle Cakes

These tasty griddle cakes can be served hot or cold as an appetizer or a side dish for soups or salads.


  • 2 cups (500 mL) cooked yellow split peas
  • 2 cups (500 mL) cooked cornmeal
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) milk
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) sambal oelek or sriracha
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) flour
  • 4 tsp (20 mL) baking powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


Mix cooked yellow split peas and cornmeal together.

Add beaten eggs, milk, and sambal oelek or sriracha, and mix until smooth.

Fold in flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in green onions.

Preheat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Spoon mixture into 2-3 inch (5-7.5 cm) patties. Fry cakes 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown.

Serve on their own or with a dollop of sour cream and additional thinly sliced green onion.


  • 1 cup (250 mL) dry split peas will yield 2 cups (500 mL) cooked peas.  Feel free to cook extra split peas to use in other recipes.
