Serves 10 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 3


2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup red bell pepper, small dice
3 tablespoons cilantro, minced
8 ounces corn kernels
1/2 c milk
1/2 c unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 c cornmeal
2 whole eggs
1 egg yolk

In a medium bowl, combine flour and cornmeal. Set aside.

Combine corn and milk in food processor or blender and process until smooth.

Beat in eggs and yolks.

Stir in dry mixture.

Fold in scallions, bell pepper, and cilantro.

Heat heavy skillet (you can't beat cast iron!) to medium high heat with a little bit of vegetable oil.

Spoon about two tablespoons of batter into the pan and smooth out a little to form a round.

Cook like a pancake, browning both sides – about three minutes per side.

Serve as a side for grilled meats, as a topped, blini-like appetizer, or, as pictured above, as a main course covered with black beans and herbs.

These little corn cakes are super easy to make, can be made to go with a variety of dishes, and are, of course, very, very tasty.
