Recipe Notes

  • Fresh corn works very well in this recipe. Cook 2 large ears of corn for 5 minutes in boiling water then cool in very cold water.  Cut kernels off the cob, cream style, (cut kernels with shallow cut then scrape the cob for the rest of the kernel). Add to batter.
  • Try serving with salsa or applesauce.
  • This recipe can also be made quickly with your favorite pancake mix. Make enough batter for six servings. Then, add 1 can drained corn or 2 cups cooked fresh corn cut off the cob.

3 Comments for "Corn Pancakes"

Have made these several times with an afterschool cooking group for our "veggie pancake" class.  The students are usually a little nervous about putting CORN in their pancakes, but the nice smell while cooking usually convinces them to give'em a try.  My mom used to make a similar recipe she called "Corn Fritters", but this Food Hero recipe is lighter and the pancakes cook up a little thinner, so great for kids and taste testing

Drizzle with honey for breakfast!

I was a little skeptical about these in the beginning but they were delicious! The fresh corn was a really nice touch and it was something new to eat for breakfast! I ate mine with salsa and it added a whole new dimension!
