Expert Tips

These mini corn cakes can be baked rather than fried. Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray. Make corn cakes as directed except omit vegetable oil. Drop corn mixture by tablespoonfuls onto the cookie sheets; press each into 1 1/2-inch round. Bake about 12 minutes, turning once, until golden brown.
