Ingredients

1 1/2cupswholemeal flour, self-raising
1 1/2tspbaking powder
1cupmilk, reduced-fat
1/4tspnutmeg
1largeegg
1tbspvegetable oil
2cupsspinach, frozen and chopped
1cupcorn kernels, canned, rinsed and drained
1cupcheese, light tasty, shredded

Method

  1. Sift baking powder and flour together.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients (egg, nutmeg, milk, cheese, corn and spinach) and hand mix until well combined.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and pour spoonfuls of the batter into the pan (approx. 6cm x 6cm).
  4. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side before turning over with a spatula and cooking the other side. Cooking them slowly is key here so they don't burn on the outside before they're cooked in the middle.
