This recipe is from an old family recipe book. I'm sharing it to ensure that it lives on and on. And also, so that others can enjoy it. The original recipe called for fresh corn, but good fresh corn is not always readily available, so I modified it to use canned corn.

I tried out this recipe last week and found the results to be mediocre. SO I tried it again this weekend with some changes. I raided a PACKET OF POWDERED CHEESE from a mac n'cheese box and stirred it into 1/4 cup SOUR CREAM and stirred that into the batter. Also I added 1/2 cup more shredded CHEDDAR CHEESE and the pancakes were superb! Read More

Added extra cheese cut in small chunks(used a lite variety). Added more corn a 1/2 can of creamed corn some chopped cauliflower (about 3/4 cup) and 2 Tbsps mild jalepeno peppers chopped. Added little more flour and baking powder and fried this like fritters and.... oh my - they turned out delicious! Try them spread with a little hot pepper jelly. Read More

I tried these last night but with the following changes: I had a leftover zucchini so I grated it and tossed it into the batter I had a 12oz can of corn so I drained it and used the whole thing I used olive oil instead of butter and I grated and extra half a cup of cheese and topped the cooked pancakes with it. We're vegetraians so it was our dinner main dish. I served this with spicy black bean salsa and sour cream. My fiance really loved them. I'd say they are worth a try but perhaps as a southwest/mexican type dish - not a sweet breakfast one. Read More

These were good but we found that they could use more cheese. We flipped the pancake then sprinkled on extra cheese. That made them better! Read More

Too much corn meal made them a little too firm would prefer more leavaning too. Read More

These were good I'd call them corn cakes instead of pancakes and I was told by the dad I made them for today that they were dry. He had never heard of making them with cornmeal so may be a little less cornmeal? Read More

I loved these - we went for a more southwest style meal. Here's what we did: add a 4oz can diced chilies and serve topped with refried beans sour cream salsa and sliced avocados. I was looking for a recipe that could work this way and this one totally does. I have added grated zucchini chopped sauteed onions chopped kale and other veggies to the batter in the past with great results. I'm not sure I would like these with maple syrup...but great for dinner with all the toppings! Read More
