Wow, I’m actually on time for a French Fridays with Dorie post! This week we made Corn Pancakes.
These pancakes couldn’t be more simple, and they are made with pantry items so they can be whipped up whenever the mood strikes. Canned corn (drained), 2 eggs, a bit of flour, and some salt are whirled together in a blender to make the batter. Fry in a hot pan with some oil until golden and you’re done!
Corn Pancakes are meant to be served as a side dish, but they can also be served as an hors d’oeuvre with creme fraiche and caviar. I served them as a side to Grilled Chicken with Red Peppers and Basil. Except I forgot the basil. Oops!
I enjoyed these as a not-usual side dish. The flavors went well with the chicken and peppers. I’m not sure how often I will make them, but I recommend Corn Pancakes if you are looking for something a little different.
