In a saucepan, combine 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 cup of water. Whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil, cook and stir until thickened. Remove from heat.
Stir in one beaten egg. Stir in 1/2 cup all-purpose flour with one teaspoon baking powder, and a shake or two of black coarse ground pepper. Beat well. You want a sturdy dough, but not too stiff, add a splash of water if it won't let you mix it easily.
Fold in the drained corn, mix well.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the boiling soup, don't let soup stop boiling. Lower the heat to simmer, cover with a tight lid, cook 12 to 15 minutes until done. No peeking!
