Summer dinners are meant to be quick, relaxing and should showcase our favorite summer foods. These corn pancakes are not only delicious but are also quite nutritious. Enjoy them with maple syrup or serve with a side salad. Savory pancakes are such a nice change from sweet breakfast pancakes. Give these a try if you want to hold onto summer a bit longer!

Ooh these look super yummy! I want to try them! I love recipes like this that use fresh seasonal ingredients 🙂
Thanks Liz! I hope you will try them. Fresh corn is so delicious right now, and this is a great way to enjoy it.
These look and sound amazing! I think I actually have all the ingredients for this on hand, too. Might have to give these a try.
I hope your family enjoys these as much as mine did!
They sound tasty. Can you use fresh garlic and onions instead of the powder or would this change the texture too much? (My kitchen stock is limited.).
Yes, you can definitely use fresh garlic and onions instead!
Interesting! Ill have to give it a try!

wow! these look so cool! I love the texture the cornmeal gives!
There’s so much opportunity in this recipe. Its simplicity and savory quality leave it wide open to using as a base for just about anything. I’d definitely serve this with some sour cream and more scallions on the side, or maybe with some pea shoots or sunflower shoots and a slab of pork.
I love pancakes for breakfast, and these look so good!
Looks great! My family likes to have breakfast for dinner when we haven’t planned ahead and are in a hurry to get something on the table. This looks like a great, slightly more savory alternative.

I haven’t had it in a long time, but do love breakfast for dinner. These sound like a great twist on a traditional breakfast staple!
I love corn and they are so summery…need to try these with my children as well…look like they are easy to fix
My daughter is obsessed with corn at the moment…..these would make a nice variation!
It is a great way to elevate your summer corn! I hope your daughter enjoys them.
Wow I’ve never heard of these before, what a cool new take on the traditional pancake!! Thanks for sharing!
Nothing like good old fashioned corn cakes – I love savory pancakes like this served with a little butter….so good!

I loved when my mom made breakfast for dinner. Made me feel like we were mixing things up! I do this with my kids now, but usually out of necessity and the need to empty the pantry before doing more shopping. Thanks for a great new recipe for these crazy nights! Thanks for linking up with Saucy Saturdays and I hope to see you again next week:)
Breakfast for lunch or dinner is a real favorite in our house! So glad you enjoyed this recipe.
This is definitely an interesting recipe. Thanks for sharing it at the #AnythingGoes Link Party.
I love this recipe! I am a huge fan of corn and this is a brilliant way to mix it up a bit.
Oh wow they look so delicious!
Thank you so much! I hope you will try them sometime soon.
My crew would love these! We keep pancakes in the freezer for quick snacks and these look like they would hold up quite well. Thanks for all the in process images.
I also keep pancakes in the freezer, makes the morning school rush so much better! Or even the midnight snack kids!
