Thermobexta’s Corn and Spinach Pikelets

Corn and Spinach PikeletsThese are a very tasty savoury pikelet.  I always have a batch in my freezer, ready to put into lunch boxes.  Though, normally only half the batch make it to the freezer as my kids absolutely love them!  You can make them without the spinach if your kids are allergic to green.

200g milk of your choice
60g baby spinach
2 eggs
30g spring onions, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove
1/2 tsp herbamare
1 tsp dulse flakes
280g corn kernels
120g unbleached white spelt flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
oil for frying

1. Place milk, spinach, eggs, onions, garlic, herbamare and dulse into mixer bowl. Blitz for 10 seconds/speed 6/MC on.

2. Add corn kernels, flour and baking powder. Combine for 5 seconds/speed 3/MC on.

3. Heat a large frying pan on low heat . Add a little oil. When oil is heated, drop in tablespoons of the batter and cook until brown on both sides.

4. If you want to freeze these for lunches, freeze on a tray (not touching).  When frozen, transfer to a large ziplock bag or a freezer container.  Place frozen pikelets into lunchboxes, they will defrost by morning tea time.

  1. Just made a batch of these for school lunch boxes, I tested them out to my 17month old (dairy and wheat intolerant) and my 2.5yr old….not even a crumb was left! Love your work Bec, I have so many of your recipes saved and in constant rotation, you are amaze balls! Thank you 😊


  2. Hiya!! I made these last night and honestly they really are the best corn fritters I have ever tasted!! I’m impressed with the flavour and texture – only thing I did do was add bacon to make up the quantity of corn (as didn’t have enough) and they were also loved by master 6! Thanks Bexta – keep em coming!!!! Xx


  3. Hi Bec. If I don’t have herbamare or dulse flakes is there a substitute? Or can I just omit them.. I have everything else and I would love to have these for my lunch at work tomorrow! Thanks 😀


      1. Thank you so much for replying so quickly!!! I am so excited to be making these. Also I have verge stock paste. Wahoo! Thank you Bec 🙂 🙂


  4. Yum!! Didn’t have herbamere so used a spoon of odds n ends stock and mixed herbs. Also used frozen corn. So so good. Thanks for another winner.

  5. Delicious! and that was just my taste test. The children will be having them for afternoon tea today.
    I made them gluten free and realised I had no dried chickpeas left to mill into flour, so I just did a combo of various gluten free flours I had in the pantry.
