|Delicious Corn Pancakes|
This has been a crazy week for me! With all the things I had to do, I pulled my neck while moving planters on my deck! I have been fully functional most of the time but, the heating pad has become my new best friend! So, I was quite happy when I saw this weeks recipe for French Fridays! I’m thinking, one of the easiest we have made yet!
Dorie tells us, she fell in love with these corn pancakes while visiting a French country inn years ago! Years later, while out to dinner in the states, she saw them again prepared by now famous French chef Jean-Georges. When she commented on how she loved them, he told her with a shrug, “They’re something my mother made all the time”.
The batter for these little gems was very simple. It uses canned corn. Can’t get easier than that! I don’t use a lot of canned veggies with the exception of canned corn, canned chick peas, cannellini and black beans (oops.. I guess I do use them ). These are staples for many dishes I make such as hummus! No shopping or expensive ingredients for this recipe! I used my food processor and mixed everything in the bowl…can of corn, flour, eggs and salt. Give it a whirl, and the batter is ready for the fry pan. Drop tablespoons of batter into hot oiled pan and cook! Very easy!!
I served mine with some beautiful lamb chops I had picked up for dinner. These corn pancakes were not only easy but, delicious and a big hit with both my husband and myself! Another recipe I will be adding to my “go to” list! Happy Friday everyone!!
You can find this recipe in Dorie Greenspans cookbook “Around My French Table” or here where it is posted. To see what other Doristas are doing…check it out here!
