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.

After initially turning up his nose, my 4 yr old really enjoyed this. I left out the chives to avoid any concerns about "the green bits"! Still tasted great.

Definite success. Made this with the children who then very happily ate every drop. Will be making this again.

Just made this for lunch- loved the texture which was soft, crunchy and light. It's a kid/toddler friendly meal too even though my 2yr old found the corn a bit too lumpy for her (but she ate it nonetheless)! I'll definitely use the batter for other veggies and will try adding a bit of curry powder for a bit of spice flavour...

Very tasty and my 9 year old son enjoyed helping to make them. The whole family aged 2 to 37 enjoyed them, but the recipe makes LOADS.

I've just made these and added half a teaspoon of crushed chillies for a bit of zing. They're lovely (even my other half who is completely veg-phobic said that he liked them!). This recipe does make a lot so I now have a stock of them in the freezer.

These are fab for a quick and easy lunch for the kids (and me!), I served them with baked beans and the kids (3 and 2) loved them. Makes alot so will freeze the rest.
