For the corn cakes:

  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 3 Tablespoons vegan buttery spread
  • 3/4 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1/2 cup white spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • olive oil and buttery spread for frying

For the dressing:

  • 1 avocado pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Place the vegan buttery spread and the frozen corn kernels in a large bowl and microwave on high for one minute.
  2. Add the dry ingredients, and stir, then add the applesauce and non-dairy milk. Mix together, and add the chopped green onions, and stir again, set aside.

  3. Make the dressing: Place the avocado, cilantro, garlic, mayonnaise, non-dairy milk, salt, red pepper flakes, and pepper in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth, adding more milk if needed. Set aside.

  4. Heat about a Tablespoon of olive oil, and 1/2 Tablespoon of vegan buttery spread in a frying pan over medium heat.
  5. When the pan is hot, spoon the batter into the pan as you would when making pancakes.
  6. Cook until they are golden brown and crisp on the bottom, then flip and cook the other side. Once done cooking, place on a paper towel to drain.
  7. Serve hot with the cilantro avocado sauce on top.
