    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1/2 cup grated cotija cheese
    • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh (from about 2 large ears) or frozen unthawed corn kernels
    • 3/4 to 1 cup warm water (110 degrees)
    • 1/4 cup safflower or other neutral tasting oil, plus more if needed
