1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup creamed corn
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2/3 cup all-purpose flour

Tip: Kick the spice up a notch by subbing pepper jack for sharp cheddar cheese.


  1. Combine corn kernels, creamed corn, cheddar, eggs, milk, Parmesan cheese and green onions in a bowl
  2. Sift in flour, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and paprika. The batter needs to be thick enough that it will spread in the pan, but just a little bit. Adjust the consistency as needed, with milk or flour
  3. In a large frying pan (heated), add oil to coat the bottom of the pan
  4. Drop 1/4 cup batter for each cake and cook 3-4 minutes until the edges turn dark golden brown
  5. Turn over the cakes and cook another 2-3 minutes. Move the cakes to a Bounty paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Continue the process until the batter is gone
  6. Add salt and serve slightly warm (room temperature is fine), with a touch of sour cream. Enjoy!
