Sweet Corn Cakes: Just 2 Ingredients!

Advertiser Disclosure and PoliciesNeed a quick, easy breakfast or a delicious bread to go with your dinner? Try these amazing Sweet Corn Cakes – they’re perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Sweet Corn Cakes are a “healthier” take on Corn Fritters – which I dearly love – but they are so much better for you when they aren’t fried in fatty oil.

Plus, they are so stinking easy and they taste great with just about any meal.

This might just be the simplest recipe in my arsenal. These delicious little cakes require only 2 ingredients that I almost always have in my pantry – Pancake Mix and Canned Corn – it doesn’t get any easier!

And there are no fancy directions to follow either – just whip up your pancake mix, throw in the corn, stir and cook like you normally cook pancakes.

No Rocket Science involved.

Serve for breakfast drenched in honey butter or maple syrup (okay, maybe not so healthy anymore, but still delicious!).

Send the kids to school with Sweet Corn Cakes for bread instead of traditional lunch meat breads. Top them with mayo and turkey or mustard and ham – the kids will love them!

Enjoy Sweet Corn Cakes on the side of a hearty Potato Soup or Chicken and Biscuits instead of basic Italian bread.

You get the gist…these things go perfectly with anything. So, give them a try – your family will love them!

Here’s the recipe…
