100 g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
150 ml milk
198 g can sweetcorn kernels
salsa, either store-bought or home-made, to serve
a splash of soy or chilli sauce, or chopped coriander
1. Add flavour with spring onions, a splash of soy or chilli sauce, or chopped coriander. Children will love them just as they are, but grown-ups can add hotter flavours. Sift the flour, baking powder and seasoning into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, add a medium egg and gradually beat in 150ml milk to form a smooth batter.
2. Drain a 198g can sweetcorn kernels, pat dry on kitchen towel, then add to the batter mix with any thing else you fancy (see the tip!).
3. In a frying pan, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Once hot, fry spoonfuls of mixture for about 2 mins each side until golden and crisp on each side.
4. Serve the sweetcorn fritters with a salsa or a quick salad of peppers, spring onions, tomatoes and cucumber.
