    Carrot & feta cakes with sweetcorn relish

    • Preparation time: 30 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes

    Serves: 4


    150ml milk
    3 large Waitrose British Blacktail Eggs, separated
    150g self-raising flour
    1½ tsp baking powder
    300g carrots, coarsely grated
    200g feta, crumbled
    2 tbsp currants
    2 pinches of dried chilli (optional)
    2-3 tbsp vegetable oil and a knob of butter, for frying
    250g Greek yogurt, to serve

    2 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    2 sweetcorn cobs, kernels removed, or 250g frozen corn
    1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
    100ml cider vinegar
    75g caster sugar
    1 tsp mustard powder
    2 tbsp finely chopped chives


    1. To make the sweetcorn relish, heat the olive oil in a pan, add the chopped shallot and soften for 3-4 minutes. Add the remaining relish ingredients, apart from the chives. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 7-8 minutes, stirring, until about 2 tablespoons of liquid remain. Stir in a pinch of salt. Leave to cool.

    2. Whisk the milk and egg yolks in a large bowl. Whisk in the flour and baking powder. Stir in the carrot, feta, currants, chilli and a few pinches of salt.

    3. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks, then fold into the cake mixture.

    4. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil and the butter in a large frying pan. Add 4-5 heaped dessertspoons of the mixture. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side, until golden. Keep the cooked cakes warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining batches – the mixture is enough to make about 20 cakes.

    5. Stir the chives into the relish. Put the cakes on a platter. To serve, spoon the yogurt and relish over the top and eat straight away.
