Nope. At least not following the recipe. Not for me.
Maybe it’s because I’m looking forward to the first fresh-picked corn from our local farm in Camp Verde this weekend. Or maybe because I’ve been spoiled by the really great quality frozen corn… but my rendering of this recipe just didn’t cut it. Maybe later this summer I’ll try this again when I have some fresh corn that I want to use in some different way. But I don’t know. With so many great alternatives (elote con crema, corn pudding, budin de elotes, corn quiche, corn studded muffins… you get the idea), I just don’t know that this will get the nod.
That said, this is a simple dish. Canned corn, flour, eggs, salt.Whirl it all in a food processor, cook the pancakes in a frying pan…
Dorie suggests serving these along side a roast – chicken, pork. And I think that would be tasty enough. I just didn’t think they had any real flavor, and the texture wasn’t wonderful. So maybe my fail. I’m sure that others have come up with something much better.
I did, however, make the dough for Dorie’s Rosemary, Almond and Parmesan cocktail cookies. Now those, I have some real hope for!
