Griddle Corn Cakes
1 jalapeño, seeded and cut into 4 pieces
¾ cup unbleached, all-purpose flour (+ ½ cup if using frozen corn)
1/3 cup yellow cornmeal (+ 1/3 cup if using frozen corn)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
pinch freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3 ears fresh corn (or about 2½ cups kernels), divided
1 large egg, lightly beaten
½ cup reduced-fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
crème fraîche or sour cream (optional)
chopped fresh chives, for garnish (optional)
Place the jalapeño in the bowl of a Cuisinart® Food Processor, fitted with the metal chopping blade. Pulse until roughly chopped. Add flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper, baking powder, and sugar. Pulse 3 to 4 times to combine. If using fresh corn, cut kernels from cob using a serrated knife. Add two cups of kernels to the flour mixture. Pulse 4 to 5 times; scrape down sides of the bowl. With the food processor running, slowly add the egg and buttermilk to the mixture. Process until well combined.

Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in reserved corn.

Fit the Cuisinart® Griddler® Combo with both griddle plates and preheat to high.

Once the grill is preheated, brush the griddle plates with the butter. Using a 1/3-cup measure, scoop six portions of batter onto the hot griddle. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until well browned. Repeat with remaining cakes.

Serve with crème fraîche or sour cream and freshly chopped chives.
