Mini Sweetcorn Pancakes

A healthy snack that's also perfect for breakfast, substitute tomato ketchup for maple syrup if you don't have a sweet tooth.


195g can sweetcorn, drained

8 rashers streaky bacon

100g plain flour

1tsp baking powder

1 medium egg

150ml milk


Oil for frying

Maple syrup to serve

  1. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl. Make a hollow in the centre and add an egg.
  2. Gradually add the milk, until all the flour is worked in and the batter is smooth.
  3.  Add the sweetcorn and seasoning and mix together.
  4. Lightly oil a frying pan and heat until hot. Ladle in spoonfuls of batter to create pancakes approximately 4cm in diameter, then cook for one or two minutes each side or until firm and golden brown.
  5. Keep the pancakes warm in the oven until they are ready to serve.
  6. Grill the bacon until it is crispy.
  7. Serve the sweetcorn pancakes with the bacon and maple syrup.
