Ingredients:

  • Corn (1 can)
  • Creamed Corn (1 can)
  • Eggs (2)
  • Cheese (cheddar / 1.5 cups
  • Jalapeño (de-seeded and chopped real small)
  • Salt
  • Cayenne Pepper, Chili Powder, Crushed Red Pepper (just a little bit)
  • Flour (all purpose white / 1.5 cups)
  • Baking Powder (1 tspn)
  • 1/3 cup milk (more or less to make the batter the right texture)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl mix together the corn, creamed corn, eggs, cheese, jalapeño, salt, and seasonings.
  2. Add in the flour and baking powder as you stir.
  3. Pour in a little milk at a time and stir until the batter is as thick as pancake batter (falls of the spoon easily without being watery).
  4. Put some oil in a frying pan over medium-ish heat and fry cakes a few at a time flipping them over to cook on the other side when bubbles start to form on the top.
  5. Pull cakes out of the pan and put them on a plate with a few paper towels to help catch the excess oil.

Tips & Tricks:

  • These are best served with a spicy avocado salad: mix together 2 avocados (chopped), with 1/3 of a red onion (minced), a few pinches of crushed red pepper, and half a lime (juiced).
  • Cover them with a towel to keep them warm until ready to eat.
  • This is served (in the photo) with Mexican Stuffed Shells.
