1. First, lay out a towel on your kitchen counter. Then, holding your ear of corn upward cut the kernels off of the cob. Collect all of the kernels and add to a large mixing bowl.
2. To the mixing bowl add your pancake mix, eggs, creamed corn, salt, and hot sauce. Mix together until the batter is a uniform consistency.
3. Next, add a large sauté pan to the stove top. Turn to medium-high heat.
4. Coat the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of butter. Once the butter starts to bubble, add 2 tablespoons worth of corn cake mix to the pan and let cook.
5. After 2-3 minutes flip your corn cakes and let finish cooking on the other side.
6. Place on a plate after finished cooking and serve warm.cooking tips
- If corn is not in season, you can substitute frozen corn. Figure ½ a cup per ear of corn.
- These are a lot like pancakes. The first ones are never as nice as the last ones. Do not be discouraged.
- When I make these, I smear on the Avocado Cream Cheese and a fresh herb salad, but you can always shredded beef or Beer-Braised Pork Shoulder with Homemade BBQ Sauce over them. Or, top with fresh tomatoes and queso fresco cheese. No matter what, these are delicious and a simple, fun way to serve classic appetizers.
