A local farmer grows the best sweet corn I've ever had. People come from miles around just to buy her corn, and I always buy several dozen ears to freeze for myself. —1Annie

What You'll Need
  • 4 ears of fresh corn, cooked, then removed from cob
  • 1 & half cup unbleached flour
  • pinch sea salt
  • quarter cup raw sugar

  1. Cook corn in boiling water approx. 8 mins, until tender.Cool and strip kernals of corn from cob. In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg with milk. Add remaining ingredients except corn. Gradually add corn without over mixing. In a large skillet, heat oil without burning. By spoonfuls drop your batter into the hot oil into a pancake shape.
