These Fresh Corn Cakes with Peach Mustard Sauce will become a recipe favorite in your house. They are perfect on the side of soups, salads, or just on their own for a fun snack and a great appetizer to serve at a party.

The sauce is made by combining jam and mustard in a bowl and then stirring. The recipe calls for peach jam, but you can use apricot as well. 
These corn cakes are so easy to make. If you know how to flip pancakes then you can definitely make corn cakes. It only takes about 10 minutes or less to whip these up and then cook on the stove in batches. If you have an electric griddle, use it to cook the corn cakes, so you can cook several at one time! I love a good easy and quick recipe. I hope you enjoy these fresh corn cakes as much as I do, and make them before corn is out of season!

    1. When I use frozen corn sometimes I toss it in a fry pan with a tablespoon of olive oil just until it is warmed and starts to turn a bit golden. I haven’t tried it, but I’ve also heard Trader Joes sells a frozen grilled corn in a bag!
      thanks for reading ABK,

  1. I assume the last four ingredients get mixed in along with the other dry ingredients? I made these last night, and they are SO GOOD!!

    1. Hi Anne,

      Yes, sorry when I updated this recipe somehow the last 4 ingredients were deleted from the instruction portion. Thanks for the heads up, I corrected. Glad you love the corn cakes! Thanks for reading ABK 🙂

    1. Yes Shelly, they would work out great as mini muffins. That’s a great appetizer idea to top them with pulled pork. Yum! Thanks for asking and for reading ABK,
