Savory or Sweet Corncakes - Via Runner's World Magazine
1 can (14.75 ounces) creamed corn
1 cup yellow cornmeal, divided in half
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for griddle
1 large egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Heat creamed corn in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in 1/2 cup cornmeal. Whisk in the water, then oil, then egg.
In a bowl, mix remaining 1/2 cup cornmeal with flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined.
Heat a griddle over medium heat; brush lightly with oil.
Working in batches, drop batter in generous 1/4-cup portions onto hot griddle. Cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, about five minutes.
Finish with a dollop of yogurt and honey or maple syrup, or sour cream and salsa verde. Makes 12 cakes. Serves four.
