Corn fritters

Difficulty: Easy

Time: 10 minutes + 10 minutes cooking

Serves: 4

We like corn fritters (or sweetcorn pancakes as Hannah calls them) for a simple lunch or snack. Lewis, like a lot of todders enjoys his finger food at the moment and as you can cut them into strips they are a great way of getting a few vegetables into him.

Ingredients

100g self raising flour
¼ tsp mustard powder
2 eggs
3 tbsp milk
140g Sweetcorn

Method

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.
