Serve these corn-studded pancakes with a black bean salad to round out the meal. They also make a great savory breakfast treat if you serve them with a little butter rather than the tomato sauce.

  • Add tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Uncover and cook 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and cilantro.

  • To prepare pancakes, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Fold in corn, green onions, and jalapeño.

  • Combine milk, 1 tablespoon oil, and eggs in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add to cornmeal mixture, stirring just until combined. Let batter stand for 10 minutes.

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spoon about 1/3 cup batter per pancake onto hot pan. Cook 4 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges looked cooked. Carefully turn pancakes; cook 2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Serve immediately with sauce.
