Here’s a continuation to the previous post about corn products.In the last post, we talked about the various type of corn products available and today we would be putting these products into good use to make some delicious, healthy food :) Let’s start!

Sweet corn Fritters

  • 500g/1lb 2oz frozen sweetcorn, defrosted

  • ½ tsp chilli flakes

  • 200g/7oz plain flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 150ml/5fl oz milk

  • salt and pepper

  • 125g/4½oz bacon, chopped

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 200g/7oz tomatoes, finely diced

  1. Put the sweetcorn and chilli flakes into a mixing bowl. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix.

  2. In a separate small bowl or jug, combine the eggs and milk and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour over the sweetcorn and flour, and mix well so that everything is evenly distributed.

  3. Preheat the oven to 160C/325F.

  4. Fry the bacon in a large dry frying pan over a medium heat until crisp and coloured. Once cooked remove and set to one side.

  5. If there are any burnt bits in the frying pan remove these. Add some olive oil to the pan and then add tablespoon sized dollops of the sweetcorn batter to the pan. Fry over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes, or until coloured, then turn and repeat on the other side. Keep warm in the preheated oven while you cook the remaining batter. Add a little more oil to the pan as you go to prevent the fritters sticking and to help them colour nicely.

  6. Meanwhile season the finely diced tomato with salt and pepper.

  7. Serve the crisp sweetcorn fritters with the bacon and the chopped tomato sprinkled over the top.

Corn Flakes Caneles

  • 100 grams/ 3 1/3 cups corn flakes

  • 520 grams/ 2 cups milk

  • 28 grams/ 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 130 grams/ ½ cup honey

  • 100 grams/ 2/3 cup all purpose flour

  • 50 grams/ ¼ cup sugar

  • 6 grams/ 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 large eggs + 2 large yolks

  • 60 grams/ ¼ cup Bourbon

  • 0.25 grams/ ¼ teaspoon Bokers Bitters

  • 225 grams/ 8 ounces food grade beeswax

  • 225 grams/ 8 ounces unsalted butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/ 176°C

  2. Lay the cornflakes out on a sheet pan and bake them for 5 minutes until they turn a deep golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer to a medium saucepot.

  3. Add the 500 grams milk and set over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, remove from heat, cover, and let steep for 30 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, discarding the solids and weigh out 500 grams of cornflake milk. Add a little bit of plain milk if there is not enough.

  4. Put the cornflake milk, butter and honey in a medium saucepot set over medium heat and bring it to a simmer. Remove from heat.

  5. Meanwhile put the flour, sugar and salt in a medium bowl and whisk them together a few times to blend.

  6. Put the eggs and yolks in a small bowl. Beat them gently with a fork just until they come together in a homogenous mixture.

  7. Pour the eggs into the flour mixture and then pour the milk over the eggs, stirring with a rubber spatula to incorporate them. Stir gently until the mixture comes together in a smooth batter.

  8. Add the bourbon and the bitters and stir until just incorporated. Put the batter in the refrigerator uncovered until it is completely cool, then cover it and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours and up to 3 days.

  9. Preheat the oven to 250°F/121°C

  10. Line a baking pan with parchment paper, set a rack over the paper and put the canele molds on the rack. Put the pan in the oven.

  11. Put the beeswax and the butter in a medium saucepot set over low heat. The beeswax is extremely hard and rather than trying to chop it we put it in the pot as a chunk. Once the beeswax and butter have melted and come together, pull the pan with the molds out of the oven and set it on the range beside the pot of beeswax. Use tongs to pick up a mold and use a small ladle to spoon the beeswax mixture into the mold. Fill it to the top and then immediately turn it over and dump the wax back in the pan. Let as much run out as possible and then invert the mold over the rack to cool.

  12. Put the molds in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour before baking. Coated molds may be covered and kept in the refrigerator for up to a week. Leftover beeswax/butter can be chilled or frozen.

  13. Preheat the oven to 475°F/246°C

  14. Take the canele batter out of the refrigerator. It will have separated, use a small rubber spatula to stir it a few times to bring it back into a smooth batter. Pour the batter into the prepared molds filling them ¾ of the way to the top.

  15. Place them on a sheet pan lined with a silicone sheet leaving about 2-inches of space between each mold. Put them on the lower rack in the oven and turn the temperature down to 410°F/210°C. Bake for 40 minutes and then rotate the pan and bake for an additional 20 minutes. They should be a deep, dark golden brown. Use tongs to immediately invert and unmold each cake and then gently transfer them to a rack to cool. Caneles are best eaten the day they are made.
