Mielietert (Sweet corn Bake)

by empirevital

This fabulous Mielietert (Sweet corn bake) is creamy and sweet, and it will fill your plate with some true South-African sunshine and hospitality. This is the ideal side dish for your braai (cookout) this weekend.

So yesterday was Heritage day here in South-Africa. It is a public holiday where we celebrate the heritage of the different cultures that make up the wonderful diversity of South-Africa. On this day, South-Africans all over get together to have a braai (cookout) with friends and family. As this recipe is a favorite in many South-African households, it sure to feature on many of the planned menus. This golden delight is sweet enough that you could have it for dessert. Mielietert (sweet corn bake), sweet as it is, compliments grilled meat very well. Mielietert is extremely easy to prepare, with just a few ingredients mixed together and then baked in the oven. Not much of a fuss for such delicious treat. I have never come across anyone who does not like this. So you better watch out, this will be eaten in a flash! Therefore you should consider making an extra one for later.

For this mielietert you will need:

  • 2 cans of sweetcorn
  • 4 extra-large eggs
  • 60 ml real butter (melted)
  • 60 ml white sugar
  • 60 ml flour
  • 15 ml baking powder
  • Large pinch of salt

To make this:

Preheat the oven to 180°C and butter a large pie dish.

Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well. Add the batter to the pie dish and place into the oven and bake for approximately one hour. Once ready, it will have a golden color. Mielietert tastes best when served slightly warm.
