These are really good. I double the recipe for my family of four, and I get 16 (2") cakes. I pulse the corn kernels, but leave the green onions as is. I agree that they are a bit bland. I would suggest either adding more salt or cheddar cheese. I made them with cheddar cheese last night and they were awesome. I put a pat of butter on them as soon as they come out of the pan, and they are heavenly with the melted butter. I make them dairy free for my kids (bc of an allergy), and my 2 year old ate 5 of them.
