12 portion(s)

Southern Cheesy Bacon Corn Cakes

  • 120 g Tasty cheese, cubed
  • 1 small brown onion, peeled, halved
  • 2 rashers bacon, roughly chopped
  • 400 g Tinned Corn Kernels, or defrosted frozen corn
  • 260 g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 zucchini, I used a small zucchini
  • 50 grams Milk
  • 0.5 level teaspoons chilli powder
  • 0.5 level teaspoons salt

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees

    Use spray oil to generously grease a metal or silicone muffin tray (don't use patty pans - the cheese will stick).

    Grate cheese for 5 seconds on speed 8 and set aside.

    Chop onion, zucchini and bacon for 4 seconds on speed 7.

    Add corn (including liquid) and mit for 4 seconds on speed 7.

    Add cheese, milk, salt, chilli powder and flour and mix for 5 seconds on speed 7. Remove lid, scrape down sides of bowl and mix again if required.

    Place mixture into muffin tin and sprinkle each muffin with a small amount of paprika.

    Bake for 20 minutes until golden.

This makes 12 standard muffins or around 30-35 mini muffins.  They are very moist and hold their shape well while baking.  You can fill the muffin tin quite high as they don't tend to spill over as they rise.


The recipe can be doubled (only just!) - you may need to mix by hand with the spatula at the end to make sure all the batter is incorporated.


Add whatever you have in the fridge or pantry, eg sundried tomatoes, olives, roasted capsicum, feta, spinach, seeds, etc.


These make a great lunchbox filler and don't contain any eggs so are perfect for families with egg allergies.
