Fresh summer corn is super fantastic awesome. Well, except two things: worms and shucking.

A pile of fresh picked ears look and smell so inviting.

Fear and frustration come between me and buying a bunch to take home.  If only there were an in-home corn shucking service.

Anyway, no shucking involved in Blueberry Masa Harina Pancakes.

Sunday Supper theme this week is corn. Seeing it announced brought a smile to my face.

Like I mentioned, fresh summer corn is super fantastic awesome.

Heck, even frozen corn ranks high on the delish scale.

So what to make? Hmmm…. Then I remembered the corn pancakes I made a while back.

Blueberry Masa Harina Pancakes are sweet, fluffy, and loaded with fresh blueberries. They have a delightful corn flavor and are gluten-free.

The corn pancakes I made before are on the savory side. They have jalapeño peppers and corn kernels inside.

This time I wanted to go on the sweet side. Blueberries came to mind first.

Also I wanted to call them masa harina pancakes. Why? Because calling them corn pancakes caused confusion.

What was the confusion? A southern bread called Johnnycakes made with cornmeal. I had a lot of folks thinking those savory corn cakes were Johnnycakes.

The difference is masa harina or corn flour. It looks and feels like regular flour. Masa harina is finely ground and not gritty.

Blueberry Masa Harina Pancakes are sweet and fluffy. The texture is like a regular pancake.

The big difference is flavor. You’ll immediately taste corn. It’s a nice change from the usual.

How about more corn recipes? Scroll way down to find ones by Sunday Supper tastemakers.

Also take a look at my Elote (Mexican Grilled Corn), Spicy Corn Casserole, Corn and Tomato Pizza, Hatch Chile Shrimp Corn Chowder, and Grilled Corn Relish.

They’ll make you want to head to the market and get a bushel or two of corn.

I’ll be heading for the bin of pre-shucked ears. Avoiding worms and corn silk is my plan.

Masa harina is corn flour and commonly labeled as "Instant Corn Masa Flour" on the packaging. Do not substitute corn starch or cornmeal for masa harina.

These were delicious! I followed the recipe but baked the mix in a tart/pie dish for 20 minutes at 425 degrees F to avoid the griddle. Easiest cleanup and very happy.

Made this with Maseca corn masa flour for tamales since that’s what I had. Reduced the sugar a little, used thawed frozen blueberries, and subbed with coconut oil since was out of butter. Came out delicious! A little crumbly but a fun and satisfying different kind of pancake, especially if you’re craving corn bread!

This is now in my recipe box. I like lots of thin flappy pancakes so I added a lot more liquid and let it sit for a few minutes because it really thickened up! Also added much less sweetener as I didn’t put berries in and I like to put syrup and a over easy egg on top so I go for a more plain pancake. The masa harina is so soft and creamy. Such a great texture for pancakes. Love it! It is nice that I don’t have to mix a bunch of flours for this one.
