The most difficult part of this recipe was digging out my blender.
I am a person that does not like to clutter
the countertop with appliances so I "store them".
That said, this was one simple recipe.
I blended the corn, flour, eggs and salt into a beautiful mix.
Before I started to fry the pancakes I happened to check out the
"LYL" on Dorie's website. There was one entry and they were not too
pleased with the results so I decided to fix it before I started.
I fried halve of the recipe as per Dorie, and to the rest I added grated Italian
cheese and cayenne pepper. The dark brown pancakes are the cheese
version and I think I over cooked them. Whatever, they were good.
I must admit, I liked both versions.
I topped each with a bit of sour cream, served it with ham
slices and a lovely fresh green salad.
Hubby and I enjoyed it all.
The recipe is so simple, and can be used as a great
little extra appetizer with wine or drinks.
We loved this recipe. It was very easy and while you could certainly
add other ingredients into the pancake if you wanted to play around -
we genuinely enjoyed the recipe exactly as Dorie shared it.
Not only was it delicious, but the ease of preparation and fact that you
basically only needed to make sure you had a can of corn in your
pantry means I have a very solid chance of reproducing this again
in the near future !
Like Nana, the toughest part of the process was looking for my
blender (which I never did locate and moved on to the Cuisinart.......)
and the taste of these were well worth the effort. Also like Nana,
my husband and I had a discussion about what a nice little "nibblie"
these would make with drinks. The boys were fans as well.
Great recipe !!
