Making Delicious Cheese & Corn Flapjacks

I had been sewing all day and did not even look in the direction of the kitchen, when it suddenly dawned on me that it was time for dinner. It was a wild scramble deciding what to put on the table that could be achieved in a very short time. My mom suggested flapjacks and we brainstormed until we settled on cheese & corn flapjacks. I grabbed the camera to record what we did in case it worked out brilliantly and we wanted to do it again. It did! And we will! Fortunately that means I can now share this brand new family favourite with you as well.

Given a little more time, you can make your own sweetcorn. I've blogged about that before and you can read that blog here. If pressed for time, as I was, you simply open a can and empty it into a mixing bowl.

Add four eggs.

Now add 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) milk.

Add 2 cups (500 ml) cake flour and 3 teaspoons (15 ml) baking powder.

Finely chop 1 small onion or half a large onion and add that.

Add 2 cups grated cheddar cheese.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together.

The mixture should have a slightly runny consistency.

Heat a little oil in a pan and drip the mixture onto the hot oil. Once small bubbles start to form on the top, it is ready to be flipped.

Flip with a spatula.

Serve hot of the griddle. No need for butter or condiments. The flapjacks are delicious as is.
