Recipe Preparation Level: easy
Kathy Cary, chef and owner of Lilly’s, a four-star restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky, learned at an early age from her mother how to make corn cakes. This traditional Southern dish is a wonderful complement to turkey hash, another Southern specialty. Use corn straight off the cob for best results.
BUTTERMILK CORN CAKES
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup corn kernels (about 1 ear corn)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for frying
1. Bring 1 cup water to a boil. In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal and boiling water. Let plump 10 minutes. Add sugar and salt. Stir to combine. Let sit 10 minutes more.
2. In a small bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Set aside. In a liquid measure, combine buttermilk, corn, egg, and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Whisk to combine. Slowly add buttermilk mixture to cornmeal mixture, whisking constantly to combine. Add flour mixture, and stir to combine.
3. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Using a ladle, pour about 2 tablespoons corn-cake batter into pools spaced 2 inches away from each other. Cook until edges begin to bubble, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn and cook until golden on bottom, about 1 1/2 minutes.
4. Repeat with remaining batter, keeping finished corn cakes on a heat-proof plate in the oven.
