It was a fabulous season for corn on the cob…super sweet and tender. Our favorite produce stand will be closed for the season in a week, so I purchased a few ears of corn to make this delicious recipe.

Fresh Corn Cakes…adapted from Southern Living

2 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 5 ears) or substitute frozen corn kernels, defrosted*
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup yellow corn meal
8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Stir together batter ingredients: eggs, milk, butter, flour, corn meal, salt and pepper. Add corn, cheese and chives.

Spoon 1/8 cups of batter onto hot, lightly oiled non-stick frying pan. Do not flatten. Allow to cook 3-4 minutes till edges start to brown. Flip and cook the other side 2-3 minutes.

*You may roughly chop the corn if you prefer a finer texture.

  1. Liz, this looks like another “must try soon” recipe. Love your blog!

  2. Hi Lizzy…..I’ve never had these before but will now, as we are ‘corn’ fans here. Maybe next week I’ll venture to the farmer’s market and pick some up. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Thanks, you two!!!

  4. Yummy!!!! I think I’ll try this this weekend. I โ™ฅ corn.

  5. Erica, this was first posted by Diane M, so you know they’re good!!!

  6. Me, too, Vanesa!

  7. Hi Liz – I’m back in business here in viewing my favorite blogs. Didn’t check in while on vacation. Now, these fritters look amazing and I can’t try to try the recipe! Did you serve this as a side for dinner?

  8. I would love to try these. We have such good corn right now~! Thanks Liz. I always find something new and so good here.

  9. Yes, Hilary…these were served as a side.

    diana, thank you!

  10. I’ve printed it. Safeway having a sale = 6 ears for $1. Pretty darn good, too. Not like the native corn you get back east, but very good these last few years. The guy was just unloading the box. I test a kernal by sticking it with my finger nail. If it squirts at me, it’s good! I love all your desert recipes, but I enjoy recipes like this, too.

  11. Thanks, Leef! Let me know if you try them…

  12. Lizzydo, I made these tonight. We loved them. I found them to be extremely “corn fritter-ish”, without the deep fat frying. Duane liked his hot off the griddle with butter, I liked mine with a wee bit of pure maple syrup on the side. This recipe is a keeper.

  13. Thanks for the feedback, Leef!!! I’m glad you and Duane enjoyed them, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Lizzy, I love Southern Living recipes too. I had a collection of Southern Living cookbooks from 1979 to 1999, and donated all of them to Goodwill! Now, Goodwill gives back, I’ve been finding latest issues there, but not the oldies…sigh!. Love this recipe, will try it. Great job, skinny chick!
