Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
250g corn kernels, canned
2 eggs, beaten
80g self raising flour
1 tbsp caster sugar
pinch Maldon sea salt
2 tbsp butter
8 rashers middle back rindless bacon
120ml maple syrup
Corn Cakes: Place the corn kernels in a bowl with flour, sugar and
salt. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the egg and milk and beat it
with a fork so that you have a smooth batter. Set the mixture aside for 5-10 minutes
Place 1 tablespoon of the butter in crepe pan or frying pan and melt it over a
moderately low heat. Make individual pancakes by spooning large tablespoons to the
pan when the butter has melted. Cook the pancake on one side until bubbles appear
all over the surface then turn them over, the cooked side should be firm and golden.
Cook for a minute then take them from the pan and keep the warm while you cook the
rest adding a little more when the pan is dry..
Bacon: Place the bacon on a tray cover in foil and cook them under
a hot grill for 2 minutes on each side.
To Serve: Place 4 to 5 pancakes on each plate and the 3 bacon
slices. Drizzle the maple syrup all over it. Eat! Eat! EAT! YUMMY!!!
