Time: 10 minutes + 10 minutes cooking
We like corn fritters (or sweetcorn pancakes as Hannah calls them) for a simple lunch. Lewis enjoys his finger food at the moment and as you can cut them into strips they are a good way of getting a few vegetables into him.
100g self raising flour
¼ tsp mustard powder
3 tbsp milk
Measure out the dry ingredients
Get your toddler to measure the flour (100g) into a bowl using a spoon. While she’s doing this add the mustard powder (1/4 tsp) and season with salt and pepper.
Measure out the wet ingredients then mix into the flour
Break the 2 eggs into a separate bowl or measuring jug. You could add them straight in, but I tend to break them into a different bowl in case you need to fish out some egg shell (which i normally do). Add the milk (3 tbsp). Your toddler can help you measure these out as it doesn’t matter too much if you put a little too much in.
Give your toddler a fork or whisk and get them to mix the egg and milk together. Pour the mixture slowly into the flour and stir it together.
Add the sweetcorn your mixture.
Cook your corn fritters
Heat a little oil in a pan and then dollop your mixture into little fritters. Cook for a few minutes on each side. I don’t normally let Hannah help when I’m using the hob so she just watches from her spot on the counter. They’re ready when they’re browned a little on each side.
Serve and enjoy!
