Corn Cake Recipe

Perfectly Seasonal: Corn and Cheese Cakes

Recently I was in need of a seasonal appetizer that would satiate both vegetarians and carnivores alike. After watching an episode of Giada at Home, I decided to try her grilled corn and cheese cakes. Instead of using frozen corn, I substituted fresh corn cut off the cob.

The recipe has mixed reviews, and I was a little worried that the resulting bite wouldn't be embraced by my all-female guests. However, these cakes blew my friends and I away! They were amazing.

The corn flavor is enhanced by spicy pepper Jack cheese, and the panko provides a perfectly crisp crust. Although they are rich, they're not heavy; they are satisfying and filling but still light. These cakes pair perfectly with a glass of sparkling wine! I highly recommend you make this hors d'oeuvre. Get the recipe here.

Ingredients

  1. 3 ears fresh white corn, husked and corn cut from the cob
  2. 3/4 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese (3 ounces)
  3. 1 cup fine plain panko breadcrumbs, divided
  4. 1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
  5. 1 chipotle chile in adobo, minced
  6. 1 tablespoon sour cream
  7. 2 tablespoons minced cilantro, divided
  8. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  9. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  10. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  11. 1/2 cup crème fraîche, for serving

Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the corn into a chunky puree. Place in a medium bowl. Add the cheese, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, chives, sour cream, chipotle chile, 1 tablespoon chipotle chiles in adobo, salt, and pepper. Stir until combined.
  2. Form the mixture into small balls and then flatten into patties, each about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and 3/4-inch thick. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Coat the patties in the remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumbs and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Brush the patties with olive oil and grill until toasted, 4 to 5 minutes each side.
  5. Arrange the corn cakes on a platter and top with a dollop of crème fraîche.

Serves 6.
