Ingredients

  • Melted butter
  • 120g fine cornmeal
  • 120g self-raising flour
  • 1½ tsp caster sugar
  •  ½ tsp salt
  •  275g natural yogurt
  • 1 medium free-range egg
  • 90g melted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 75g crumbled lancashire cheese
  • 2 corn cobs
  • ½ tsp olive oil
  • Large handful of watercress
  • 250g halved cherry tomatoes
  • 25g crumbled lancashire

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Brush the inside of a 23cm ovenproof frying pan with a little melted butter. In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, self-raising flour, caster sugar and salt. Mix the natural yogurt, egg, melted butter and 50g crumbled lancashire cheese in a measuring jug. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir to combine.
  2. Run a sharp knife down the side of the corn cobs to remove the kernels (discard the cobs). Add three quarters of the kernels to the batter, then pour into the pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, toss the remaining corn on
