by Christina Stanley-Salerno

What you'll need

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Helpful Tip:

Pancakes are ready to turn when edges appear dry and bubbles start to form. For a sweeter cake, leave out the scallions and add 2 tablespoons of sugar.

How to make it

  1. Place flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, pepper, corn, egg and milk into a blender. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.  Add in scallions but do not blend again.
  2. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Use a 1/4 cup-measuring cup to portion out the batter and cook cakes until golden brown on each side, about 1 minute per side. Serve with sour cream.
