These are a very tasty savoury pikelet! I set out to create a corn fritter batter recipe for the Thermomix and while these didn’t come out how I’d planned, they are a very tasty savoury pikelet that is incredibly popular with my kids (bonus with all that veg!)
They freeze well and are really good for lunch boxes. Simply freeze in a single layer, on a lined tray or plates. When frozen, transfer into a container or big ziplock bag and store until needed.
You can make them without the spinach if your kids are allergic to green!
You can mix and match the ingredients if you like, I’ve even made these with peas instead of the corn and the kids devoured those too.
Update: My Corn Fritter recipe for the Thermomix did end up eventuating and let me tell you, they are exactly what I was wanting! Crunchy and PACKED with corn, much less batter than a pikelet-style corn fritter. If you would like to try them, the recipe can be found here in Super Sides Made Easy.
