These little corn cakes are the perfect summer side. Utilizing fresh summer corn, picked at its peak, they are bursting with sweet corn flavor. Great as a side dish to grilled meat or fish, they could also be a meal on their own!


  1. Whisk 1/2 cup each flour and cornmeal, 1 1/2 teaspoons turbinado sugar, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon each baking powder and baking soda and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk 1 cup buttermilk, 1 egg and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then fold in 1 cup corn kernels and 1/4 cup chopped chives. Cook 1/4 cupfuls of batter in an oiled nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with hot honey.
