Jalapeno Corn Cakes (makes 4)
Jalapeno Corn Cakes
These cakes are hot and spicy just as they are, but to raise the heat factor even more, serve them with a bit of Jalapeno jelly. The recipe will certainly work with thawed frozen corn (not canned) but is at its very best when fresh corn is in season. Great all by themselves for brunch or as part of a larger meal with beans and a salad. ~ Glyn and Will.
1/2 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) corn
1 tbsp. pickled jalapeno pepper, chopped
