Corn Cakes

This is a fun little recipe for when you have some extra corn on the cob that you don’t know what to do with. That happens rarely at our house since all but one of us could eat corn on the cob with every meal. But when we do have a few extra ears hanging out in the fridge, I like to use them to make these corn cakes.


Corn Cakes

  • 1 1/2 c. raw corn kernels (about 2 ears)
  • 1 c. finely crushed saltines
  • 1/3 c. milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. pepper
  • 1 T. canola oil

1. Mix all ingredients, except oil, in a medium bowl  until well blended.

2. Heat half the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop 6 tablespoonfuls of corn mixture into the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes; flip and cook an additional 2 minutes, until lightly browned. Repeat until done.

These are perfect for a snack, lunch or side dish. They taste great with all kinds of dipping sauces too, including hot sauce, cocktail sauce, ranch or even maple syrup.

  1. My Mom used to make these when I was a kid, how fun to see them again! I’ll have to give them a try.
    Would frozen corn be okay? I have some corn on the cob in the freezer.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a perfect way to use extra corn. These look good and sound easy. In my book, that’s a great combination. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  3. I made these last night and they were delicious! I had left over cooked bacon and chopped green onion from my Loaded Baked Potato Soup from the night before so I added that as well as some cayenne pepper. We ate them with sour cream. They’re definitely on the keeper list!
