To fry the corn cakes (per batch):

Dab a TBS of peanut oil onto a paper towel
Wipe down the interior of a non-stick pan with the oil
Heat the pan over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes
Ladle the batter into the pan to form corn cakes
Do not overcrowd the pan
Fry off the corn cakes 2 to 3 minutes per side
They should be golden brown
Repeat this process until all of the batter is fried off
While frying off the rest of the corn cakes, keep the completed ones warm in the oven
To serve: garnish each portion with a dollop of sour cream
