    by Martha Collison

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes to 30 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes to 45 minutes 45 minutes

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    150g sweetcorn, fresh or frozen
    100g plain flour
    1 tbsp caster sugar
    25g polenta
    1 tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    250ml buttermilk
    1 British Blacktail Medium Free Range Egg
    25g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
    1 avocado, cubed
    ½ red chilli, finely chopped
    ½ lime, juice
    6 rashers streaky bacon, grilled
     

    Method

    1. Cook the sweetcorn for 6-7 minutes in a small pan of boiling water until tender. Drain and rinse in cold water to cool. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, mix the flour with the caster sugar, polenta, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda. Beat together the buttermilk,
    egg and melted butter in a measuring jug.

    2. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and slowly pour in the wet ingredients, whisking all the time. Continue to mix until a smooth batter forms with no lumps, then fold through most of the sweetcorn.

    3. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and grease very lightly with butter, wiping out any excess with kitchen paper. Spoon a few teaspoons of mixture into the pan as a mini ‘test pancake’ and see how it cooks. Adjust the pan temperature accordingly. Repeat if necessary.

    4. When the pan is at the right temperature, spoon 2 tbsp of batter into the centre of the pan and spread into a circle shape. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until bubbles start to appear and the underside of the pancake is golden, then carefully flip over and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until spongy and cooked through. Transfer to a warm plate and cook the rest of the batter in the same way to give 6 pancakes, greasing the pan with butter as needed.

    5. Combine the avocado, chilli, lime juice and remaining sweetcorn in a small bowl, then spoon over the pancakes. Top with hot, grilled bacon and serve immediately.
