Corn's always been the basis of my favorite recipes—in fact, these corn cakes were one of the first things I made for my husband. For dinner, they're nice with fresh fruit salad and ham. They're also great with breakfast sausage and orange juice. Tom works for the highway department on Mount Hood, and we live at its base. Our children are 19, 16 and 13.

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks; blend in milk and butter. Add to dry ingredients; stir until just mixed. (Batter may be slightly lumpy).
Stir in the corn, green onions, red pepper and green chilies; set aside.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into batter.
