Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal (recommended: Indian Head)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup frozen yellow corn, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, plus extra to thin batter
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, plus extra for frying
  • Maple syrup, for serving
Directions

In a large bowl combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt.

In a medium bowl, whisk the thawed corn, egg, milk, and vegetable oil. Pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients and combine. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

In a cast iron pan on medium-high heat, add enough vegetable oil to fill the pan about 1/2-inch deep. When the oil begins to swirl, add the batter in batches to the pan using a small ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup measure to make each hoecake. Gently spread into a circle, if needed. Flip the hoecakes when the air pockets begin to pop on the surface of the batter and a peek underneath the cake reveals a golden rim and surface, about 2 minutes.

Once the second side is golden brown, transfer the hoecakes to a baking sheet in a warm oven and continue making the rest. Serve with maple syrup.
