Rebecca Wilson

by Rebecca Wilson from What Mummy Makes

No need to stand at the stove and batch fry these deliciously fluffy fritters from weaning expert What Mummy Makes - they're baked in one sheet pan, meaning less effort and even less washing up!

From the book


Sometimes it’s nice spending 10 minutes at the stove top making up a batch of fritters or pancakes. However, some days there just aren’t enough minutes let alone hours in the day. Quickly whip up the fritter batter, pour into a lined baking tray and bake in the oven until puffed up and golden. Total fuss-free cooking, with no compromise on the flavour!

For the tuna and sweetcorn fritters
90g (3oz) self-raising (self-rising) flour
2 eggs or 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds (linseeds) mixed with 75ml (2½ fl oz) water
70ml (2½fl oz) milk of your choice
145g can tuna in spring water, drained
1 tsp baking powder
200g (7oz) drained canned sweetcorn
60g (2oz) Cheddar, grated (optional)
1 spring onion (scallion), finely sliced
freshly ground black pepper
For the courgette fritters:
1 courgette (zucchini)
2 eggs or 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds (linseeds) mixed with 75ml (2½ fl oz) water
100g (3¼oz) self-raising (self-rising) flour
1 tsp baking powder
80g (2½oz) grated Cheddar or 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
80ml (2½fl oz) milk of your choice

Essential kit

You will need: a baking tray, lined with non-stick baking paper


Preheat the oven to 180°C fan (200°C/400°F/Gas 6).

Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

Add all the ingredients to a bowl and stir until combined. Pour the batter into the lined baking tray and spread out evenly to about 1cm (½in) in thickness. If your baking tray is too large, form the batter into a smaller bake, ensuring the thickness is correct.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15–20 minutes until puffed up and golden on top.

Using a pizza cutter, cut into squares (or finger strips if serving to baby). Serve with a picky salad and some full-fat Greek-style yogurt for dipping.

These fritters will keep in the fridge for 2 days, or top up your freezer stash for up to 2 months. Either defrost and warm up in the microwave or allow to defrost at room temperature and reheat in the oven for 5 minutes until piping hot inside.
