This spinach and bacon bread needs nothing more than a good lashing of butter!


  • 8 bacon rashers, fried and chopped
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 100g Swiss chard, blanched and finely chopped
  • 420g sweetcorn kernels, drained

1/2 cup canola oil, plus extra for greasing

  • 3 extra-large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


  • STEP 1
    Preheat oven to 200C. Grease a deep loaf pan (about 19cm x 8cm x 6cm) and line with baking paper.
  • STEP 2
    Mix bacon, flour, cheddar, Swiss chard and sweetcorn together. Make a well in the dry ingredients.
  • STEP 3
    Whisk oil, eggs, chilli, garlic and seasoning together. Stir into dry ingredients to form a batter.
  • STEP 4
    Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • STEP 5
    * Replace bacon with shredded biltong or roasted butternut chunks.
