Corn Pancakes
(Tortillas De Maiz)
What You Need:
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels cut from 2 large ears of corn, or substitute 1 cup thoroughly defrosted frozen corn kernels
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

  • How To Cook:
    1. With paper towels, pat the corn kernels completely dry. In a heavy 8- to 10-inch skillet, heat the oil over moderate heat until a light haze forms above it.

    2. Drop in the corn and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, or until the corn is golden brown. Drain the corn on a double thickness of paper towels.

    3. Make the pancake batter in a large bowl, beating the eggs until they are well combined and foamy, then beating in the flour, salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a heavy 5- to 6-inch skillet or crepe pan set over moderate heat.

    4. When the foam subsides, pour in ¼ cup of the batter. As soon as the edges begin to set, sprinkle the tortilla with 2 tablespoons of corn.

    5. Then with a fork, push the edges of the tortilla toward the center of the pan and tip it slightly to allow the uncooked batter to run out and cover the exposed areas of the pan.

    6. When the tortilla is set and the bottom a light brown, turn it over with a spatula and cook for 1 minute to brown the other side.

    7. Slide the tortilla onto a heated platter and proceed similarly with the remaining batter, stirring the batter before making each tortilla. Add a teaspoon of the remaining butter to the pan for each one. As they are done, stack the pancakes one on top of the other.

    8. Serve them on individual plates, topped with a tablespoon of sour cream and a sprinkling of chopped fresh parsley.

    To Make: 8 pancakes
