Corn and Basil Cakes

Try these savory corn-and-basil pancakes as a side dish with barbecued chicken or grilled steak.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white whole-wheat flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels or frozen, about 2 large ears
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

Instructions

Step 1
Whisk flour, milk, eggs, 1 tablespoon oil, baking powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until smooth. Stir in corn and basil.
Step 2
Brush a large nonstick skillet lightly with some of the remaining 1 tablespoon oil; heat over medium heat until hot (but not smoking). Cook 4 cakes at a time, using about 1/4 cup batter for each, making them about 3 inches wide. Cook until the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining oil and batter, making 10 cakes total. Reduce the heat as necessary to prevent burning.
