Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh sweet corn kernels, from 1 medium ear or frozen sweet corn kernels, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup bleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup masa harina flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon Creole Seasoning
  • Christmas Caviar Sauce

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add corn, shallots, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper. Cook, stirring, until corn and shallots are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and cream until well combined. Add cornmeal, flour, masa harina, baking powder, cayenne pepper, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 3/4 cup water. Mix until well combined. Fold in corn-and-shallot mixture.

  3. Step 3

    Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, gently drop batter, a tablespoon at a time, into pan, working in batches as necessary. Cook, turning once, until cakes are lightly golden, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Using a spatula, carefully transfer cakes to a paper towel-lines plate to drain. Repeat process with remaining oil and batter.

  4. Step 4

    Sprinkle cakes with Creole seasoning and serve warm with caviar sauce.
