249965 upside-down corn cake

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Safflower or other oil
8 Ears or 4 c. canned or frozen corn Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon Minced green or red chilies
⅓ cup Flour

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Pour the oil into a medium sized cast iron or other heavy oven proof skillet, and place in oven until sizzling hot. If using fresh corn cut the kernels from cobs, should be about 4 cups. Combine the corn, chiles, flour, salt and pepper.

Transfer the mixture to the hot oiled skillet, smoothing the top to form an even layer, do not stir. Gently press the corn mixture down to compact it. Bake until the corn mixture forms a bottom crust, about 30 minutes. Loosen the corn cake from the edges of the skillet.

Place a serving plate over the skillet and invert the skillet. Cut into wedges at the table. Submitted By BARRY WEINSTEIN On 03-17-95
