Polenta is made from dried corn and is a common staple in Northern Italy where it is served as an alternative to rice or potatoes. Used in cakes, it creates a wonderful dense texture and is perfect for people on a wheat-free diet. This makes quite a large cake which keeps beautifully for several days. I like to serve it warm with ice-cream as a dessert.
