I didn’t grow up on cornbread but cornbread grew on me. It might have been because of that guy with deep-blue eyes and the cutest American accent ever. He would make me peanut butter and honey sandwiches, and halve strawberries into salads.

One morning, as I was still deep inside my dreams, he went to the kitchen and pan-fried a whole lot of cornbread pancakes. That very morning, after too many pancakes than I’d like to admit, I told him those three words of the loving kind. This is his recipe and, trust me, you’ll fall in love with it too.

I like to serve mine with a salsa made of crushed avocado and chopped tomatoes, drizzled with lots of lemon juice and sprinkled with sea salt, sliced chilli peppers and lots of fresh coriander.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
130g plain flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1 heaped teaspoon sea salt
ground cumin
130g whole milk
1 egg
1 lime, juiced
200g corn kernels, (from 2 medium corncobs)
3 spring onions, sliced
1 chilli pepper, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped coriander

Method

  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cumin, milk, egg, and lime juice in a large bowl. Add the corn kernels, spring onions, chilli and coriander and give it a good stir.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over low heat and ladle the batter (roughly one-third of a cup) into the hot pan and cook for about 1 minute until the bottom of the pancake is golden-brown. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife and cook for a further minute. Transfer to a plate and keep on cooking pancakes until all the batter has been used up.
