Method

  1. Mix the tomatoes and ketchup for the salsa dip in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, eggs and milk until smooth. Stir in the sweetcorn, cheese and chives. Season well.
  3. Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add six spoonfuls of the mixture to the pan and flatten out slightly with the back of the spoon, keeping them separate. Cook for 1½ minutes over a medium heat until golden. Turn and cook the other side, then remove from the pan and keep warm while you make six more corn cakes with the remaining oil and mixture. Serve with the salsa dip.

Great store cupboard supper - kids enjoyed them (3yo twins) for grown ups could maybe take a bit of chilli in the batter too. Would definitely experiment with "fillings" as others have suggested.

Nice tasting. Added 25g less cheese and replaced with shredded ham.

I added strips of cooked ham onto the cakes I made this evening for the kid's tea. They wolfed them down and couldn't get enough at the beginning! Side of tomato and cucumber and my four year old and 18month old were fit to bust! Quick and easy to make too :)

Great store cupboard favourite for my 5 year old. I also add fresh coriander, 1/2 tsp cumin and pinch of cayenne pepper for a bit of a kick

My 2 kids loved these (had 3 each!) with the salsa dip - I didn't use chives and left out the seasoning as they are only 2 and 3 yrs old. Quick and easy to make and a big hit in our house :-)

After reading other comments, was a little sceptical as to whether my 4 year old veggiephobic son would like these. I'm glad to say that he loved them. I made his first (without the chives) and then added chives to the remaining batter. I can't get self-raising flour, so added 2ts baking powder instead..they worked out fine and were tasty. Adults ate with a chili con carne and son had his with ketchup. Will definitely make again.

Just made this for lunch for my 5 and 2 years old daughters. They loved them, very easy to make and fun for the kids to help with the mixing.

Consistency was excellent, better than other recipes I've tried. However, were very bland. We have some batter left over, so tomorrow I will try adding a finely chopped chilli, or some sweet chilli sauce. Also think they would benefit from spring onions or peppers, finely chopped. Didn't like the chives.

I hope my kids like it.

Really tasty and so easy to make. I added some chilli powder and a chopped red chilli for a bit more flavour.

Really tasty and very easy to make. Instead of chives I put chopped coriander. Also added a crushed green chilli. For kids I think it would be nice to add some shredded cooked chicken.

I was looking for a recipe to use up a past-its-useby-date tin of sweetcorn.This recipe was easy and tasty.It made a lot so I had some cold with chutney in a packed lunch. They also froze well.

I've made this twice now, once served with sticky glazed chops and veg. Which the kids loved soo much that we had them on Sunday for brunch with eggs and bacon. It was quick and easy and went down a treat with the whole family. It does make a lot, but the kids were happy to have the leftovers as an after school snack!
