Makes: roughly 16 (size dependent)

Ingredients:

For the pancakes:
  • 120g self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 100ml Red Tractor milk
  • 1 large can of sweetcorn kernels, drained well 
  • 1 Red Tractor red pepper, stem and seeds remove, chopped into small dice
  • 4 Red Tractor spring onions, finely chopped
  • 100g Red Tractor cheese - you can use a feta-type  or goats cheese, crumbled,  or Cheddar, grated, depending on your preference
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Sunflower or Red Tractor rapeseed oil for frying

For the cucumber salad:
  • 1 large Red Tractor cucumber, sliced into thin slices with a food processor or mandolin
  • 1 Red Tractor red onion, sliced similarly thinly
  • 3 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
  • 4 tsp Red Tractor caster sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Handful of chives

Method:

  1. Toss the cucumber and onion slices together in a bowl.
  2. Warm the vinegar in a small saucepan with 3 tablespoons of water. Add the sugar and salt, and stir to dissolve. Taste and add more sugar and salt if necessary. Pour over the cucumber-onion mix. Decorate with snipped chives.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, eggs and milk to form a thick batter. Add the corn, pepper, spring onions and cheese. Season well. You want the mixture to have the consistency that it will drop in blobs from a spoon into the pan, so if it is too thick add a little more milk or some water.
  4. Add a tablespoon of oil to a frying pan and heat over a medium heat until a teaspoon of batter sizzles gently when your drop it in. 
  5. Then add the batter a tablespoon at a time into the pan. Turn when they are set and brown on one side  - about three minutes on each side. 
  6. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm until ready to eat. 
  7. Serve with the pickled cucumber salad
