Corn pancakes

Breakfast for dinner

Sometimes, you just don’t feel like regular dinner stuff for dinner. Maybe everyone’s tired. Maybe you just want something sweet. Or it needs to be really really cheap. Maybe you’re just looking for another way to eat sweet corn while it’s still in season. Those nights, we have corn pancakes.

How to make corn pancakes:

Make regular breakfast pancakes, but throw a handful of sweet corn in – this is a great use for leftover corn on the cob. Just cut it off the cob and throw it into the pancake batter. Serve the pancakes with applesauce or sliced peaches.

Vegetarian or vegan?

Vegetarian, but not vegan. If you need meat with your dinner, add some sausages or sliced ham. If you need your pancakes vegan, follow the vegan pancakes recipe at the bottom of the pancakes page.

And will corn pancakes keep?

Yes, you can wrap the leftover pancakes in a plastic bag and refrigerate them and they’ll be great the next day. You can reheat them in the toaster, or by putting them in the oven for a few minutes at 300 F.
