    Default Corn Pancakes

    I wanted to use up a few cobs of grilled corn leftover from the Fourth
    of July. I slliced the corn kernals off of the cob, then mixed up a
    batch of pancake batter. I sprinkled a good handful of corn over
    each pancake before I flipped it.

    We enjoyed the corn pancakes. The smokiness of the grilled corn
    tasted so good against the sweet pancake syrup. '

    I think these are corn fritters. Whatever you call them, they are fine,
    fine, fine!

    I think fritters are deep fried. But, whatever, a batter doesn't seem to
    suffer from the addition of corn kernels.

    That does sound good! I have a couple ears in the fridge that I just
    might allocate for that particular purpose. Though, a little pat of
    butter or Brummel and Brown might be sufficient -- nix the syrup.

    Thanks for sharing!

    That does sound good! A wonderful injection of carbs.

    Made me google Brummel and Brown. I wonder if that's a regional brand. I'll
    look for it.

    My Eastern VA relatives made what they called corn fritters at most
    breakfasts, but they were not deep fried. Everything was fried about the
    same way, in a skillet.

    I've heard a term used for it on Food Network lately... "shallow"
    frying.

    That is so funny. People started out frying stuff in however much grease it
    took, in a skillet. Then somebody got fancy and began using a deeper pot and
    more oil and calling it "deep frying." So now the original "frying" must
    become "shallow frying."

    I watched Tyler Florence (I think) and he made something with white
    hominy. He said that if you like creamed corn, you'll like hominy. I
    like creamed corn, so I should give it a try!

    Tara, I've never tried this with grilled or roasted corn, though I'm sure
    that would be an interesting and tasty twist. Growing up my mother
    frequently added fresh cut corn kernals to pancake batter. I've always
    loved corn pancakes.

    Years later I started adding fresh cut corn kernals to my cornmeal waffle
    batter... Super delicious!

    Contrary to what some people seem to believe, these are definitely
    pancakes, not fritters. For those who don't know, corn fritters are not
    flat pancake style. The batter is thick enough to form with two large
    spoons and slide into deep fat for frying.

    I like all forms of corn including both white and yellow hominy. However,
    I find absolutely no resemblance in flavor or texture of white hominy to
    creamed corn.

    I bet they would have been good sans the syrup and used as a base or
    layers stacked for something like creamed chicken. I make an onion
    waffle (Oster waffle maker recipe book) at times for creamed chicken and
    it is delicious!

    and aren't fritters more of a bread crumb mixture that gets fried rather
    than a pancake batter?

    Jon,

    In a rush today, I forgot all about the brand and grabbed the Fiber One
    strawberry yogurt 4-packs.

    The Brummel and Brown store locator mentions it's available at all the
    ACMEs in all directions nearby!

    I entered it into the iPhone shopping list.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    I think it depends on the recipe, but fritters that I know are a thicker
    batter. Not necessarily fried in a deep fryer, but most certainly in deeper
    fat than one would fry pancakes. I think of pancakes of sort of baking in
    the open skillet with little fat. Then various other kinds of "cakes" take
    more fat and fritters the most. But what do I know?
