Savory Corn and Garlic Scape Pancakes

savory corn and garlic scape pancakes


Pancakes don’t have to be only for breakfast or dessert; savory pancakes are delicious for lunch or dinner! Savory pancakes are easily customizable; we added sweet corn and onion-y garlic scapes in ours. Garlic scapes grow from the green tops of the garlic; they have a light garlic flavor but bring enough intensity to be a substitute for onions. And they add a fresh pop of color to this recipe!




2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (vegetable oil works, too)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups cooked corn kernels
1–1 ½ cups milk (any fat content works)
3 tablespoons diced garlic scapes
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt
Black pepper to taste


    1. Heat a medium-sized skillet with the oil over medium-high heat. Meanwhile mix remaining all ingredients together, adding the milk a half a cup at a time to desired consistency. Thicker batter produces denser pancakes, and thinner batter produces lighter pancakes.
    2. Drop a heaping tablespoon or two into the hot pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until brown.

That’s it! A simple recipe for a quick, delicious meal. Serve with salsa, ranch dressing, or Greek yogurt.
