    Pastor James Brown: Corn Fritters Pancakes

    February 21, 2017 / By Pastor James Brown, Bowmansville UMC & Faith Lancaster UMC

    As a pancake lover and cooker for many, many years, I have used this recipe to feed many a fine group of people over the years at many Shrove Tuesday events prior to Ash Wednesday.

    Folks do plain pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, but I enjoy making, as I like to say, "Step it up a Notch!" Corn Cakes pancakes as a second choice. Lots of people love them and have wanted the recipe, so here it is!


    (Serves 4)
    1 can whole kernel corn                         
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 shredded cheese
    2 tbsp oil                              
    1 tsp baking powder                                 
    1 pat butter       
    Salt & pepper to taste                                                       


    1. Drain can corn and save liquid.
    2. Put eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl and beat.
    3. Add flour and baking powder, whisk until smooth.
    4. Add corn & corn juice and shredded cheese.                       
    5. Stir together, batter should be semi thick. (A cheap trick is to use Bisquick/Jiffy Mix & equal parts of stone ground corn meal & cans of corn, mix & add milk to make batter)
    6. Put butter and oil in frypan & heat until bubbly over medium heat.
    7. Drop corn mixture in spoonful lots into frypan.
    8. When golden turn and cook other side.
    9. Drain on absorbent paper and serve.
