FFwD: Corn Pancakes

Corn Pancakes

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is Corn Pancakes. Delicious, right? But here’s the catch — they were supposed to be made with canned corn. Seeing that it’s the end of June I just couldn’t do it. I confess, I used fresh corn (2 ears for a half recipe). I think if this recipe had been assigned a non-Summer month, I totally would have tried it with canned or frozen corn.

1. I also threw about 5 basil leaves in the blender because I love corn and fresh basil together.
2. I got about 12 pancakes with a half recipe (I used a tablespoon to measure).
3. I thought they were really good! I had some for lunch the next day with some braised kale and chicken.
4. I drizzled the top with some smoked balsamic vinegar I picked up in Santa Fe last month.

Okay, here’s a link to everyone’s posts and my pictures.

Two ears of fresh corn gave me about 8.5 oz of kernels.

  1. I like that you used fresh corn on these – I am sure it heightened the flavor & basil is always a great touch 🙂

  2. the best of us used the fresh corn… if canned is good enough for the French – I will take that option 🙂 Great job!

  3. Wow! You really created a fabulous meal. I love that you used fresh corn & basil. You took something so simple and plain and made it amazing!

  4. I used fresh corn too. But I used 2 ears for the whole recipe (I was imagining volume, not actually weight). I like that you added fresh basil. It also looks nice with the braised greens.

  5. Grr, either I stink at math or your spam filter is extra fussy because I always seem to lose my first comment. Oh well, just wanted to say that your pancakes look great and I bet that they were extra tasty with fresh corn and basil.
