I don't know about you, but, I love Brunch on a Sunday. Scott and I try to go out for Sunday Brunch at least once a month to some of our favourite Cafe's around Newcastle. I also do a Brunch at home once a Month when Jonathan is here.
Over the years I came to realise through my travels around the world, that we Australian's LOVE the Sunday Brunch and I do not see this same thing happen in other countries. Sunday Brunch with friends is one of our favourite ways to gather and enjoy each others company, with or without kids. Kids are welcome in most places here and it is a fantastic way of teaching them their, "going out in public manners".
One of the great Brunch menu items in most cafe's is the Corn Fritters. A little bacon on the side and a poached egg on top with a little Chilli Jam or Tomato Chilli Chutney and your away.
These fritters are also a great light lunch or even a side for a meal. Great to take to work with a salad through the week.
Kids love them!
2 1/2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen/thawed
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoons of each salt and pepper
3/4 cup milk
In a bowl place the corn, cheese, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.
Toss together until everything is coated in the flour.
In a jug beat the egg and milk together.
Pour the wet into the dry ingredients.
Mix together until all combined. Now you do get better results if you let this mix rest in the fridge for an hour or you can make it up the night before.
In a hot frypan melt a generous dob of butter and fry approximately 1/4 cup of the mixture.
Remove from the frypan when cooked on both sides and place on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with a little salt.
Serve with a nice little bit of salad and a poached egg for a light lunch or bacon for a brunch.
