mediterranean corn cakes seasoning spices victoria gourmet recipe

In late July and August when local corn is abundant, I try to use it in every dish I make. These delectable corn cakes made with my spicy Jalapeño Pepper Flakes and Mediterranean seasoning are always a hit. I often serve them as a dinner side dish. When I make them as appetizers I make them just a smidge smaller.


3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/4 cups corn kernals
