    JustJanS's Note:

    I love polenta (and caramelized vegetables), so this recipe really appeals to me. Prep time doesn't include the cooking, cooling and peeling of the capsicums!

      The Caramelized Vegetable topping on this cake is SENSATIONAL !! Actually the roasted capsicums were delish straight after being peeled. The polenta was easy to make and had good flavour. I would recommend cooling for at least 30 minutes before trying to remove the tin- I didn't and the cake collapsed on one side (but still tasted great). The leftovers set lovely and firm....guess that I was just too impatient to do the taste test. I've always had my polenta pressed into a larger dish, refrigerated, sliced and grilled. The topping was amazing and really was a good match to the creamy polenta. The amount of oil used for the vegetables wasn't just used about a tablespoon. Photos also being posted.
