Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m more than slightly obsessed about brunch. It’s my favourite meal of the day, up there with afternoon tea. So, I thought I’d share one of me favourite dishes – my no fail, really quick corn fritter recipe that’s perfect for last minute plans (and/or curing over indulgence from the night before.)
There’s just something about the gathering of family and friends around a well set table that makes my heart happy. It’s the best place in the world. Especially one laid with bacon, avocado, sweetcorn fritters, coffee, and a sparkling beverage or two.
Piping hot, fluffy scones with mouth watering nuggets of dates, topped with butter melting into their hot surface. If you keep reading, consider yourself warned that this date scones recipe is addictive – made with simple store cupboard ingredients, they are ridiculously easy and scrumptious.
Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah. Date Scones. These, savoury muffins and pikelets (aka “scotch pancakes” for my Brits) are cornerstones of my Kiwi childhood. Memories of the kitchen full of sunshine, the smell of fresh baking and all us kids desperately trying to get hold of the hot delicacies. Now, I’d eat them on their own on a cosy winter afternoon or perhaps sneak them into afternoon tea.
