Directions

  1. Place two non-stick baking sheets in the oven and preheat to 450°F.
  2. Cook the corn in a medium saucepan with a cup of boiling water ‘until tender, about 2 mintes. Drain the corn in a colander and let cool. Press the corn lightly to squeeze out excess water. No wringing.
  3. Puree 1 cup of the corn kernels in a food processor. Add salt to taste, sugar and egg whites and process until just mixed. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the flour, then the remaining corn kernels.
  4. Brush 2 teaspoons of oil on the now hot baking sheets. Spoon small mounds of the latke mixture on the sheets forming 2 to 2 ½ inch pancakes. The sheet should sizzle a bit when the batter hits it. Leave one inch between each latke.
  5. Bake the latkes in the oven until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes per side,turning once with a spatula. (When you turn the latkes, try to flip them onto spots on the baking sheet that still have oil.).
  6. Serving suggestions: If you are in a sweet mood serve latkes with sour cream and strawberiy or raspberry preserves. Savroy more your style, then try sour cream alone or with some chopped scallions.
