  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • butter to fry and spread


In a bowl, whisk together flour, egg and milk to make a batter.

Stir in corn kernels.

Heat frying pan and add 2 teaspoons of butter. When sizzling, drop in tablespoons of mixture.

Turn over and cook the other side.

Spread with butter.


  • This batter is best used straight away.
  • You can make a larger batch of these and freeze them for later.
  • I tried using margarine to spread on these and I have to say that the butter tasted so much better.
  • For a sweeter taste add 2 tsp of honey. Reduce the milk a touch to compensate for the extra liquid.
