    Bland…. Salsa was alright.

  • Beth P

    I’m looking to cut back on white flour. Can I just increase the amount of cornmeal and skip the flour?

    Your pictures are great and I love your addition of fresh ingredients to the corn cakes. And avocado salsa … yes please!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes you could do this, although it would change the consistency. Thanks Beth!

  • Paul

    Do you have the nutritional information on these? They look absolutely wonderful, but I’m trying to watch calories. Would love to know if you’ve figured it out!

    thanks.

  • […] 1. Corn Pancakes – Wednesday night I had dinner at State Bird Provisions. You know the very popular SF restaurant that just has a two month waiting list to get in. Oh no I didn’t wait 2 months to get in. Instead I scored a table there by getting in line for walk in tables at 4:30. In the afternoon. Early, early bird special. I am happy to report that all the hype was worth it. We had a truly great meal. It was my kind of food – seasonal and delicious with none of that fancy stuff like foam and gel. Just good solid food. One of my favorites was a sweet corn pancake topped with a triple creme cheese. It was heavenly. So now I am dreaming about nothing but corn pancakes. These look pretty great too. […]

  • This is going on my menu plan for this week – looks amazing!

  • Making these tonight! Your recipe would be a little easier to read if you separated the ingredients for the cakes from the ingredients from the salsa, just a thought.

      Thanks for the feedback!

    My younger son and I made this dish for part of our Father’s Day meal today and it was spectacular! The avocado salsa was superb. Thank you for your recipes. Your blog is the first thing I go to after checking my mail in the morning.
