Cook's Notes

To shave kernels off an ear of corn, cut off tip of cob and stand the ear in a wide bowl to catch the kernels. Then, with a very sharp knife, slice downward.

When I was 19, I went to IHOP for the first time an tasted corn pancakes. They weren't *exactly* like this, but I craved them through the years. I never thought to use fresh corn! I'd open a can of corn and do that. Well, today I tried yours, thanks to a neighbor who brought over some fresh corn. OMG, I think I've died and gone to heaven! Craving satisfied AND fresh corn I can enjoy within minutes? This recipe was enough to try more of your recipes! Thank you!!!

The best corn cakes I've tasted are from Wishbone, a Chicago restaurant celebrating southern cuisine. They serve them with the most amazing sauce and have a version with crawfish...Martha, any chance you can get them to share the recipe for their sauce?

I made this for lunch today and served with real maple syrup. My husband liked this. I used a pinch of salt but next time I will use the 3/4 tsp of salt stated in the recipe. I think it needed the salt, but was trying to keep the sodium down. I may try other herbs in place of salt. Any way, it is easy to make and was a quick lunch. Would be nice for a side dish at dinner.

This sound yummy and can't wait to try it. I think I might add some chopped bacon and onions to it.

This is a easy recipe to get the kids to eat their vegies! I increased the flour and added 1 teaspoon of baking powder so they rise a bit. I served them with a mixed salad and steak. Love receiving my easy meal recipes. Lynds Australia

This is a tasty quick dish. I used whole wheat flour and it added a nice texture. I halfed the recipe and it seemed a little thick so I just added more milk
