HAPPY 4th of JULY!!
Now I had planned on doing this fantabulous cake to bring to my Aunt and Uncle's for today but what a disaster. It looks like a regular cake and then when you cut it, it looks like a flag. How cool is that?? Not very it turns out. Well I will post the long sad story about that tomorrow. Instead, I'll give you something that is also appropriate for the 4th - what goes better with that barbecued chicken, hamburger, and hot dog but corn on the cob!
Smokey corn on the cob en le papier d'aluminium- Yeah I know I've used that line before. But when you have a good thing going with aluminum foil, it's difficult to resist. Sometimes I don't feel like doing corn on the cob in the husks. It is tasty, but the whole soaking so the husks don't burn is too much sometimes. I've come up with this solution.
Smokey Corn on the Cob
4 corn on the cob
Tear off 4 pieces of aluminum foil. Cut 1/2T of butter into thin pieces and place on each piece of foil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and smokey paprika. Place corn on foil.
Again cut 1/2T of butter into small pieces and place on top of corn. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and smokey paprika. Grill on hot grill for about 10 minutes.
It may not look charred but it is really delicious. The foil steams the flavor into the corn. It's quick and easy.
