This won’t be to everyone’s taste and you might think I’ve lost my marbles, putting onion and sweetcorn into cake mix. But it just works, trust me! It can be enjoyed with cheese and chutney, dipped in soup or simple just by itself.
Makes 1 medium cake
100g sweetcorn, mashed with a fork
1 medium onion, finely chopped
300g plain flour
50g caster sugar
1tsp baking powder
1 medium egg
50g butter, softened and cubed
1tsp chilli powder
- Preheat oven to 200C. Grease a medium sized cake tin, put to one side.
- Place flour, baking powder, sugar, chilli powder, sweetcorn, onion and coriander, into a large bowl and mix together. Add the egg, butter and milk. Stir together until it forms a thick batter.
- Transfer the batter into the cake tin and place into the oven for 45 minutes.
