These were delicious fresh off the pan. I made them vegan by omitting the egg, using soymilk instead of milk, and substituting sunflower oil for the melted butter. I found they were also perfect corn cakes without the coconut added...try adding chopped jalapenos to the batter and putting salsa and sour cream on top...yum!
