We used basil from our garden, frozen corn, and all-purpose flour. Wheat flour might add more texture, so I will try that next time. Otherwise, I'm surprised at the consistently high ratings. They tasted fine--even a little sweet--but they needed more "oomph," in my opinion, with the texture and flavor seeming to only have one note each. So, taking cues from other reviewers, I'll likely try adding sundried tomatoes, a little garlic, or roasting the corn ahead of time. I can see where any of those would deepen and layer the flavoring more. It *is* a wonderfully easy recipe, and I'm excited about having it as a starting point, but perhaps my expectations were too high for the unaltered recipe.
