Here is the list of ingredients:

- Parmesan cheese
- Take a heavy-based saucepan and boil five cups of water until it reaches the surface.

- Gradually add one cup of cornmeal into the boiling solution. Keep stirring until it blends with the saltwater.
- Now that the ingredients are well-combined lower the heat.
- Let the solution cook until it becomes a paste. Stir now and then so that the solution doesn’t stick to the saucepan.
- Now that it has become a paste take it off the stove and let it sit for 25 to 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, take a casserole dish and sprinkle it with olive oil spray.
- Enfold the dish with saran wrap and set it aside for a while.
- Taste polenta and add a pinch of salt into it, if required. Polenta is a versatile Italian staple that is wildly loved for its various kinds.
- Now pour the polenta gently into a plastic-wrapped dish.
- Make a plastic wrap and cover the surface of the polenta in a swift motion.
- It is now time to freeze the wrapped dish. Make sure you leave it at least for two hours. For scrumptious results, leave overnight.

Making of Polenta Cakes
- It is now time to make the polenta cake. All you need is to take out the wrapped dish, remove the plastic cover, and place the polenta on a cutting board. Cut it either in half or in a circular motion. Go crazy with the shapes. Even though most cakes are round in shape, you can shape the polenta cake in whichever way you want.
- Take olive oil, sprinkle it on a sauté pan, and let it heat.
