 Country Corncakes
Although we live in a suburban area, we are lucky to have plenty of farms nearby where we can purchase fresh homegrown corn. When it's out of season, though, I do substitute canned or frozen corn in this favorite recipe.
7 ServingsPrep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min.


  • 1-1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh corn or frozen corn
  • Sour cream, optional
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled, optional
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives, optional


  • In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients; make a well in
  • the center. In another bowl, beat the egg, buttermilk and butter;
  • pour into well and stir just until blended. Gently stir in corn; do
  • not overmix. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
