Ingredients
  • ½ cup white whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • ½ teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen corn, thawed
  • ½ cup plain low fat Greek yogurt for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil for frying
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and pepper.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, then add the yogurt, whisking until smooth.
  3. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix with a spatula until smooth. Stir in the corn.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in each of 2 large nonstick skillets, over medium-high heat.
  5. For each cake, spoon about ¼ cup batter onto 4 spots on each skillet (you'll need to fry in 2 batches). Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Use a spatula to flip and cook 1-2 more minutes on the other side. Serve hot, garnished with Greek yogurt.
