Healthy Cooking Tip

To reduce fat, use low-fat milk and olive oil instead of butter. Grease the pan with vegetable oil cooking spray. Mix in fresh corn — it adds more fiber and vitamins.


  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 1 ear corn or 2/3 cup frozen corn (thawed)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup olive or canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey

    How to make it 

  • 1

    Preheat oven to 435°F. Lightly grease an 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking pan with vegetable oil spray. Using a sharp knife, remove corn kernels. Set aside.

  • 2

    In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix the all-purpose flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt.

  • 3

    In a small bowl, combine the corn, milk, oil, egg and honey, and beat well to mix.

  • 4

    Pour the egg mixture into the bowl with the flour and cornmeal. Quickly and thoroughly mix together.

  • 5

    Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, scraping any batter off the sides of the bowl into the pan. Spread the batter evenly with a spatula.

  • 6

    Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into 1 3/4-inch squares and serve at once. Makes 16 pieces.
