WEANING: Cheesy corn cakes with an avocado salsa

The combination of cheese, avocado and sweetcorn is a winner in my eyes. I've actually enjoyed this recipe for lunch on many occasions, it's so nice when Isabella and I can eat the same things. These are pretty much made up of store cupboard ingredients, making them ideal for quickly whipping up at lunch time or for a quick tea. Finger food lunches are a favourite in our house and Isabella loves that she can eat these completely independently. To make these corn cakes I chose to use wholemeal flour for added fibre, though it isn't necessary.

What you'll need:
(makes 5 corn cakes)
for corn cakes
3 tbsp Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
1 Egg
Splash of Full Fat Milk
20g Mild Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/3rd Can of Sweetcorn
Fresh Coriander, optional 
1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
for avocado salsa
(enough for one/two portions)
1/2 Avocado, finely diced
2 Cherry Tomatoes, finely diced
Squeeze of Lime
Fresh coriander

What to do:
1) Mix the flour, egg, cheese, sweetcorn and coriander together in a bowl. Stir in enough milk to create a mixture the consistency of thick double cream.
2) Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and spoon in the mixture to create whichever shape corn cakes you'd like. I made round ones, but rectangles would work well as they'd be easy for little hands to hold. 
3) Fry on one side for about 2 minutes or until golden brown, flip and cook for a further 2 minutes on the other side. Set aside.
4) To make the avocado salsa just combine all of the ingredients and serve with the slightly cooled corn cakes.
 What are your little ones favourite finger foods?

  1. These look delicious! James prefers finger food as well, he's become so fussy about being fed. x

  2. Love this - have pinned :) We have a lot of finger food as it always seems pretty successful. We make dips like guacomole and hummus with pitta bread and raw carrots etc. We love salsa too! #MinisMeals.

  3. These look so yummy, in fact I think I might make them for lunch tomorrow. I also love finger foods that I can enjoy with Baby Girl. Our faves are pea fritters. Yum! Thanks so much for linking up with #MinisMeals xx
