Fresh Corn Patties
1 egg large, separated
1 cup corn cut from cob and drained (about 2 ears)*
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
dash black pepper
2 tablespoons margarine or vegetable oil

In a small bowl, beat egg white until stiff; set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat egg yolk. Add corn, flour, salt, baking powder, and pepper. Stir until blended (mixture will be thick). Fold in egg white.
In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt margarine. Drop corn mixture into skillet by heaping tablespoonfuls, forming patties. Cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes on each side, turning once. Drain on paper towels; keep warm.
