For this recipe, I've used frozen sweetcorn, however, fresh or canned will also work. Just make sure you drain any liquid away of using canned sweetcorn.

It's a very flexible recipe too! If you wanted to add some red onion, simply chop or thinly slice and quickly sautee, and add them to the batter. Or perhaps some mushrooms? The choice is yours!

It's a moist, soft loaf/pound cake and so delicious!

They freeze very well, so always handy if you have unexpected visitors for a light lunch or brunch! This is really delicious served with a nice bowl of soup too, take along to a picnic or party, perhaps part of a wedding buffet!

So let's get straight to the recipe and see how we make this delicious savory bread. Please enjoy!

Instructions

1. Place the sweetcorn in a blender or bowl, add 2 Tablespoons of milk, then blend or mash.

You can puree until smooth, or just pulse to have a lumpy texture. I pulsed to leave chunks of sweetcorn.
Chop the peppers and set them aside.

2. In a mixer, add eggs, sugar, oil and mix for 5 minutes.

Switch off mixer and using a wooden spoon, add the sweetcorn, bacon, red and green peppers and cheese. Combine well. Then add the remaining 6 Tablespoons of milk.

3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder, salt & pepper then add that slowly to the wet mix and combine well.

Top Tips

You can make this in a 9 x 13 pan, double the recipe and check if cooked through after around 35 - 40 minutes.

You can also use this recipe (same quantity ingredients as the regular loaf) to make 12 muffins, bake at the same temperature for between 20 - 25 minutes. Leave in the pan for 15 - 20 minutes before slicing so it has time to firm up a little.

Serve warm or cooled, it's delicious either way! Enjoy!

    Just made this bread today. Bit fiddly with cooking the bacon, blitzing corn in the processor and mixing the wet ingredients but it was worth it! So delicious.
