Corn Cakes

The first time I had corn cakes similar to these was in a spiffy bed and breakfast in Salt Lake City. They were served with spicy black beans on top. They were a wonderful and new experience.  I searched for a recipe and tried out many variations and finally came up with this.  They can be savory or sweet depending on your choice of topping. 

Corn Cakes {makes 6-7 cakes}

Slice and cook 6 slices of bacon with 1/3 cup chopped onion.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine:
         1 cup flour
         ¼ cup diced green chili
         1 t. baking powder
         ½ t. salt
         a pinch of cayenne

Stir in:

         2/3 cup milk
         1 egg, slightly beaten
         1 T. oil
         1 can whole kernel corn
         2/3 cup shredded cheese, your choice

Add:  cooked, drained bacon and onion

Cook on 350° griddle by 1/3 cup.

Serve with maple syrup, melted jalapeno jelly, salsa & sour cream, or black beans.  Your choice, savory or sweet!
