I quadrupled the recipe and made it with almost a cup of regular (but mild) onions. Also, I just put the whole eggs in..didn't separate them. Also, I cooked them without oil on an electric skillet. They were very good with salsa, albeit a bit onion-y. Next time, I'm going to put in less onion, sautee the onion first, add some peppers, maybe some chili powder. They aren't pasty if you cook them long enough. I'm freezing some. I think they'll make a good, quick-to-fix snack.
Fresh Corn Cakes

These are so so good. I actually left the corn kernels whole, used whole wheat flour and added a chopped green bell pepper. Along with a simple salad, they made for a "hit the spot" meal. I will definitely be making these again.

There is no way this recipe can make 16 corn cakes. My batch made 5 pancakes about 5 inches across. I used these as a side to a meal. Little appetizer size would be good with a little pepper jelly. I didn't bother with the blender and left the pieces of corn in tack. I used corn off the cob after it was cooked, which I am glad I did. The texture would have been to crunchy with the kernels being whole. I had to add a little bit of milk to the recipe to make it pourable. As for taste, they are pretty bland. They need a little more added to it. The egg whites help them to be light and fluffy. I used a non-stick skillet and did not add the extra oil. But like I said, if I made these again I would have to add more spices and probably double the recipe to get a decent amount out of it.

A friend served these as an appetizer with a mango salsa; excellent. Having made them 3 times now with a pepper/onion jam as well as different salsa blends. They were also tasty at room temperature but better warm. Fresh cooked corn is always the best but not always available, so frozen or canned with work.

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.

Served with mexicanstyle pintos and sour cream, delicious! Without the beans, they were just so-so. Next time, I would mix some of the corn and leave the rest whole. I would also add a touch of sugar to sweeten them up. I got 5 cakes out of it, served as a very filling side. We will serve them again.
