Fresh Thinking: Corn

Crunch Time

Hazelnut-Corn-Chocolate Cake: Caramelize corn with butter and sugar. Pulse with hazelnut liqueur and buttermilk. Mix in dry cake ingredients and bake cake. Apply chocolate ganache to cake and top with caramel popcorn.

Butter Fingers

Sweet Corn and Butterscotch Cookies: Mix butterscotch and sweet corn kernels into standard wet cookie batter ingredients. Mix in dry ingredients, chill batter, and then form cookies and bake.

Chill Out

Sweet Corn Ice Cream: Mix milk, cornstarch, heavy cream, corn syrup, sugar, salt, corn kernels and cob, and bring to a boil. Remove cob, whisk in cream cheese, and chill mixture before pouring into an ice cream maker and churning. Serve ice cream alongside vanilla cake, or sandwich between bacon-sugar cookies.

Filled with Sweetness

Sweet Corn-Filled Donuts: Blend Bavarian creme and cream corn until smooth. Fill yeast-raised Bismarks with corn creme. Dip donuts in glaze, then top them with chopped corn kernels and caramel icing drizzle. Get the Dawn Foods' recipe
