Corn Cakes

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

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.

    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.

    Fun combination, not seen them with saltines before. Am new to Foodie Friday and amazed with all the different things people share.

    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!
