Baked sweetcorn fritters

I have a real affinity for sweetcorn, which I think dates back to university and eating it direct from the tin while watching episodes of America’s Next Top Model.

I always have a bag of frozen sweetcorn in the freezer as a consequence, and threw these together in a few minutes for a quick garden brunch in the blazing sunshine.

The sweetcorn remains whole so gives great little pops of freshness as you munch.

These are baked, for health and ease, so make sure you’ve got a non-stick Yorkshire pud tin handy. My tin has four large wells, but you could make more from this mix if you’ve a different tin.

I serve this with a few rocket leaves dressed with a little dressing with lemon juice.
