Garden-fresh corn on the cob is the key to making these awesome Fresh Corn Cakes. Whether you serve these as is for a novel veggie side dish, or drizzled with a bit of honey for brunch, you can't go wrong.

What You'll Need

  • 4 ears fresh corn on the cob (about 2-1/2 cups), divided (see Note)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow or white cornmeal
  • 1 (8-ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

What to Do

  1. In a food processor, combine 1-3/4 cups corn kernels, the eggs, milk, and butter; process 3 to 4 times, or just until corn is coarsely chopped.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, cornmeal, mozzarella cheese, chives, sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper; stir in remaining corn kernels and the chopped corn mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. Coat a griddle or skillet with cooking spray. Over high heat, pour 1/8 cup batter per corn cake onto griddle. (Do not spread or flatten cakes.) Cook cakes in batches 3 to 4 minutes, or until edges begin to brown. Turn and cook on other side 2 to 3 more minutes, or until heated through. Serve immediately.

About using a blender instead of a food chopper.....when you use the blender add the milk with the corn or you will have a sticky mess/blob.

This recipe sound so delicious and easy. I am wondering if it is possible to used can corn kernels. Corn on the cob is not always available where I live, except when it is in season, but I would still love to try these out.

Hi there! you can use canned corn or frozen corn, thawed. Enjoy! :)

Thank you for your prompt and positive answer. I am sure I will be making these soon! )

I just wish cooks would stop assuming everyone has a food processor

You and me both.

Hi there! If you do not have a food processor, you can chop the corn in a blender and mix the remainder in a bowl or chop the corn by hand and then mix. Enjoy!

Add the milk with the corn or the corn will stick to the sides of the blender.

Absolutely delicious.

Since ounces indicate weight and cups measure volume, 8 oz of grated cheese could very well be 2 cups.

8 oz. of already grated cheese is going to be 8 oz. The recipe didn't say anything about how many CUPS it's supposed to be. If it is more than you want put LESS next time.

Tried these today using Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour (gluten free) and corn flour instead, and farmhouse gouda, and they turned out perfect! Thanks!

These sound really good, but can they be made ahead of time and frozen for future use?

I made them today, and they were wonderful and will make them again and again.

It was the best snack I made and it really was ooh so good ".......

I made these tonight for dinner, they seemed very dry. I'm wondering if the measurement on the cheese should have been 1 cup, not one 8 oz package-that's 2 cups? I generally LOVE Mr. Food recipes!!

8 ozs is 1 cup, can never be 2 cups .

Sorry patricia, but you are the one that has made the mistake. You measure wet and dry differently. 8oz of wet is 1 cup. 8oz of dry is 2 cups. Pretty basic cooking formula.

8 ozs of shredded cheese is TWO CUPS

Try the recipe. Of course you can cut the recipe in half. What are you afraid of???

these sound really good can't wait to make them but I will probally cut it in half since it's just me

Sounds great!

good and taste.

This recipe sound delicious, I am going to make them. (Can I cut the recipe in half?) . I love Mr. Food's recipes. Thank you
