"This is a downsized version of a recipe that belonged to my husband's mother and has been in their family for 80 years," shares Myrna Gerson of Staten Island, New York. "My husband and I got married 30 years ago, and I've been making these griddle cakes ever since."


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can (8-1/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 3 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the egg, corn, milk and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot nonstick griddle. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

    Not sure if it's an altitude thing being in Colorado but in general they were dry and unseasoned. Would not add that much sugar, and heavy. Heavy and dense.

    I made these Griddle Corn Cakes as a side dish for dinner yesterday and they were light textured, flavorful and absolutely delicious! I halved the amount of sugar and added a tsp. of minced onion. This is a definite keeper! Thank you, Myrna, for sharing your recipe!

    Colorado folks like trout fishing & our family loves fresh caught trout. I remember my grandma making corn cakes like these to go with the trout for breakfast (yes, really). What a wonderful breakfast. These corn cakes remind me of hers. These cakes are good with or without trout. Thank you for sharing this.

    These were incredible! I added just a dash of season-all to kick up the flavor.
