Corn and Amaranth GriddlecakesSubmitted by: SAWILDE
IntroductionFrom Finecooking.com (http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/corn-a
.aspx) From Finecooking.com (http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/corn-a
2.25 oz amaranth flour
1 oz Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour (your choice)
1 tsp. baking powder
.25 tsp baking soda
.5 tsp salt
3 oz. medium-grind GF cornmeal
.25 C. Pine Nuts
1.5 oz butter substitute of your choice
.5 C. Blue Diamond Unsweetened Original Almond Milk
1 large egg
1 4-oz can diced fire-roasted green chilis, drained.
.5 C. fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels
.5 C. thinly sliced scallions (white and green parts)
1/2 medium jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped.
Olive Oil for pan
I've adapted this recipe to be gluten-, dairy- and (mostly) soy-free. The original recipe said it would make eight cakes, I got ten. Calorie count does NOT take into account olive oil used for frying.

Melt 2-1/2 Tbs. of the butter. In a medium bowl, whisk the milk, egg, and melted butter. Stir in the chilis.
Melt the remaining 1/2 Tbs. butter in a 10-inch nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the corn kernels, scallions, jalapeņo, and a pinch of salt; cook, stirring, until the corn shows a few light-brown spots, about 5 minutes. Stir the corn mixture into the wet ingredients. (You can prepare the griddlecakes to this point up to 4 hours ahead.)
When ready to cook the cakes, combine the wet and dry ingredients, being careful not to over mix. Heat about 2 tsp. of olive oil in a large nonstick pan or on a griddle over medium-high heat. Drop 1/4 cup of the batter at a time onto the hot pan and gently spread with the tip of a spoon to make 3-inch cakes. Cook the griddlecakes until tiny air bubbles begin to pop through the tops, 3 to 4 minutes; then flip them and cook until deep golden-brown and crisp on the bottom, about 3 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Repeat until all of the batter is cooked.
