Fresh corn pancakes

  • 4⅖ ounces cornflour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • ¾ cup organic sour cream 9%
  • 1 egg
  • 1¾ ounces pasta & gratin cheese
  • 6 ounces corn kernels
  • ½ ounce butter

Side dish

  • ½ cup organic sour cream 9%

1. Combine the flour, vanilla sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the creme fraiche, egg, grated cheese and corn kernels and stir well.

2. Brown a bit of butter in a frying pan. Using a tablespoon, form a little ball of dough, press it flat and fry in the pan – about 3 min. on each side over medium heat.

4. Combine the creme fraiche with the finely chopped chives and serve with the warm corn pancakes and ham.
