Try these savory corn-and-basil pancakes as a side dish with barbecued chicken or grilled steak.

"I made these with roasted corn (just grilled on the George Foreman and cut off the cob) and purple basil, with a little sour cream on the side. So good, and super easy. "

Very Versatile

I used this recipe as a template. I replaced the flour w/a healthy pancake mix. Swapped the basil for spinach. Added garlic and a few other spices. The result? Yummy!
I can also see replacing the corn/spinach with broccoli or even zucchini. The possibles are endless.


I have alot of sweet corn on hand and found this recipe to try. I made as is, it seemed to be a bit over powering of basil, and I love basil. I would make these again. Guess its just getting use to the different flavor. My recipe made 10 cakes. I will make more and freeze them. I have several other recipes that I found and want to try those as well.


I accidentally bought creamed corn, but decided to just go with it. The first batch fell apart, so I added another 1/4 cup of flour and let me tell you, those little cakes were delicious!

Soooo yummy!

This is super simple and quick to make. It is very delicious too. I think I am gonna make a big batch and freeze.

Very tasty!!

My room mate and I made these and loved them! We only used about half of the recommended amount of basil and it was still a bit much for us, we'll probably use less next time but we still enjoyed them immensely! I will definitely make them again!

Easy to make
