This recipe is easy to make, but it looks like you cooked for hours. I like to serve it with broiled grapefruit topped with brown sugar and ginger for breakfast, and a mixed green-tomato salad tossed with balsamic vinaigrette for brunch or dinner. —Nadine Mesch, Mount Healthy, OH
Corn's always been the basis of my favorite recipes—in fact, these corn cakes were one of the first things I made for my husband.
For dinner, they're nice with fresh fruit salad and ham. They're also great with breakfast sausage and orange juice.
Tom works for the highway department on Mount Hood, and we live at its base. Our children are 19, 16 and 13.
As teachers, my husband and I rarely have time for breakfast during the week. So we look forward to relaxing breakfasts with our daughters on weekends. The cinnamon bread in this recipe is a nice variation.
Meet the Cook: As a high school vice principal with a 5-year-old daughter, I especially appreciate the convenience of this dish. I've served it for breakfast and also as part of a full brunch buffet along with breads, biscuits, bagels and side salads.

I've developed a strong interest in cooking over the years. As a matter of fact, I came up with this casserole as a special breakfast for our daughter when she was home for a visit. —Steve Heaton, Deltona, Florida
The recipe takes a little longer to prepare than regular French toast, but I think it's worth it, especially on holiday mornings. The sweet apricot syrup complements the cream cheese filling. —Karen Leutz, Sylvania, Ohio
