This is definitely the best recipe for corn cakes/fritters that I have tried. Not only the best, it is also the simplest. Sometimes as a variation I add chilli.

This is a fantastic dish...really a change from the norm for us. I halved the recipe but served it with black beans and chopped fresh tomatoes so there were still 4 substantial servings. The instructions were clear and precise, and the combination of flavors and textures quite pleasing. This dish is casual enough for a quiet night at home, and nice enough for company. I will definitely make this wonderful recipe again. Thanks a lot Chef #256951!
