Bacon and sweetcorn fritters with honey

swcornfritters_300

Makes about 12 fritters

Ingredients:

  • 1 can creamed sweetcorn
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • Salt
  • 1 packet streaky bacon
  • Honey or maple syrup
  • Oil for cooking

 

Directions:

  1. Light a CobbleStone and wait a few minutes until it has turned grey. Or, if you don’t have a CobbleStone on hand, ready your briquettes in the Cobb Cooker.
  2. Place the Frying Pan on the Cobb Cooker and leave it for at least 5 minutes until it has heated up.
  3. Combine the sweetcorn and flour in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt.
  4. Glug a little oil on the Frying Pan and cook the bacon until crispy – about 20 minutes. Cover with foil and set aside.
  5. Spoon the batter onto the Frying Pan with the lovely bacon fat on it. Each fritter should be a heaped tablespoon and make sure to spread them a little to cook evenly.
  6. Let them brown on one side before you turn them. Bubbles should come up through the fritter and then you know its time to turn (about 8-10 minutes a side).
  7. On turning, press them down in the centre for even cooking.
  8. When they are done, plate them with the crispy bacon, drizzle with honey or maple syrup and enjoy.
