      Title: Tortillas de maiz (corn pancakes)
 Categories: Hispanic, Columbian, Breakfast, Time/life
      Yield: 4 Servings
      1 c  Corn kernels, fresh; cut
           ;2 ears of corn or 1 cup
           ;thoroughly defrosted frozen
           ;corn kernels
    1/3 c  Vegetable oil
      8    Egg
      2 tb Flour
  1 1/2 ts Salt
    1/2 ts Black pepper; freshly ground
      6 tb Butter
    1/2 c  Sour cream
      2 tb Parsley; fresh, finely
  With paper towels, pat the corn kernels completely dry.  In a heavy 8
  to 10 inch skillet, heat the oil over moderate heat until a light
  haze forms above it.  Drop in the corn and cook, stirring frequently,
  for 10 minutes, or until the corn is golden brown.  Drain the corn on
  a double thickness of paper towels.
  Make the pancake batter in a large bowl, beating the eggs until they
  are well combined and foamy, then beating in the flour, salt and
  pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a heavy 5 to 6 inch
  skillet or crepe pan set over moderate heat.  When the foam subsides,
  pour in 1/4 cup of the batter. As soon as the edges begin to set,
  sprinkle the tortilla with 2 tablespoons of corn.  Then with a fork,
  push the edges of the tortilla toward the center of the pan and tip
  it slightly to allow the uncooked batter to run out and cover the
  exposed areas of the pan. When the tortilla is set and the bottom a
  light brown, turn it over with a spatula and cook for 1 minute to
  brown to the other side.
  Slide the tortilla onto a heated platter and proceed similarly with
  the remaining batter, stirring the batter before making each
  tortilla. Add a teaspoon of the remaining butter to the pan for each
  one. As they are done, stack the pancakes one on top of each other.
  Serve them on individual plates, topped with a tablespoon of sour
  cream and sprinkling of chopped fresh parsley.
