Today I went to the farmer’s market in Haddonfield after Pure Barre, and I bought 8 ears of corn! I immediately thought.. corn fritters! But I’m not calling them fritters because I didn’t fry them in a bunch of oil. I’m calling them corn cakes because I used Kodiak Cakes pancake mix and cooked them just like pancakes. So these are more like savory pancakes filled with crunchy corn and drizzled with fresh roasted red pepper ranch! Yummmmmm!

RECIPE: (makes about 10 corn cakes)

  • 1/2 cup Kodiak Cakes Powercakes mix
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 3 ears of corn (corn removed form ear)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice (I used 1% milk)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • about 8 slices roasted red pepper (you can buy these in a jar)
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing (I used Bolthouse Yogurt Ranch)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • in Β a large bowl, mix Kodiak Cakes mix, cornmeal, baking powder, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper together
  • add the egg and milk to batter and mix until smooth
  • add parsley and corn, and fold into the batter with a rubber spatula or large spoon
  • in a food processor, add roasted red pepper and ranch – blend until smooth
  • heat a large skillet on medium heat
  • add batter to skillet, making 3 inch pancakes
  • flip each pancake when bubbles start to form and cook until golden brown on both sides
  • drizzle corn cakes with roasted red pepper ranch and garnish with fresh parsley
  • enjoy!
