Farm Fresh Corn Cakes with Bacon, drizzled with Ohio Maple Syrup
Barbie Hahn- Fox 19's Suburban Chef
Did you ever buy too many ears of corn at the market or cook too much corn and have left overs? You can use this recipe with fresh uncooked corn , grilled corn or leftover cooked corn cut off the cobb. What a great way to use leftovers,,, it feels like an entirely "new" dish, not leftovers.
I have made my corn fritter batter from scratch, but in a pinch I used my favorite corn muffin mix "Jiffy" and the results, I hate to say, were better than from scratch. Now, I don't bother....
1 box Jiffy (or your favorite brand) corn muffin mix
1/3 cup buttermilk
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 chopped chives or green onions
2 Tablespoons chopped red bell pepper
1 slice bacon crumbled
1-2 ears corn cut off the cobb
Ohio Maple Syrup
In medium bowl add Jiffy baking mix, 1 egg, 1/3 cup buttermilk and pinch of cayenne pepper. Mix gently. Gently fold in green onions or chives, bacon and corn.
Let rise 5 minutes.
In shallow pan, heat 1/4 cup of canola oil to medium heat.
Drop batter by 1/4 cup fulls into oil and brown on both sides.
