Corn and Country Ham Quiche (makes 1 big quiche or 6 individual ones)

Ingredients

For the crust

250ml( 1 cup) cake flour
125ml(1/2 cup) mealie meal
200gr butter - cold and cut in cubes
1 tsp curry powder
1 cup grated mature cheddar cheese

Place all the ingredients except the butter in a food processor and while the machine is running, add the butter, a little cube at a time, until all the butter is worked into the flour and the pastry starts to clump together. Stop pulsing and throw the pastry out on a floured surface and press together with your hands and cover with cling wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour. On a floured surface, roll out the pastry to the size of your quiche pan, mine is about 29cm(11-12 inches). Alternatively use your fingers and press the pastry down to fill the quiche tin. Refrigerate while you make the filling. Yes, you read correctly...no pre-baking!

Filling

2 cups corn - cooked ( you can use frozen)
1 large onion - chopped finely.
a little vegetable oil
250ml sour cream or plain cream cheese
5 eggs
1 cup mature cheddar cheese - grated
salt pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 small log of cream cheese - Chakalaka flavor
6 thin slices of country ham
fresh thyme

Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions until soft, but not brown. Beat the eggs and sour cream together and add the corn, cheddar, thyme, salt, pepper and sauteed onions. Pour the mixture into the pastry base and crumble the cream cheese over the top. Fold each slice of ham in 4 form "roses" and stick into the mixture to stand out . Bake at 180 C until the middle of the quiche feels firm to the touch.

SPINACH, FETA AND BACON QUICHE
For the pastry:
1/3 cup + 3 Tbsp plain flour
3 Tbsp cold butter (if you use salted butter, omit the salt from later in the recipe)
1 Tbsp cold vegetable shortening
1 ½ Tbsp iced water
Pinch of salt
For the filling:
2 large eggs
1/3 cup double cream (or full cream milk)
1/3 cup bacon, chopped
1/3 cup of feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
a handful of baby spinach leaves
Method:
Preheat the oven to 425F (220C). Using either a food processor or your hands, rub the butter and shortening into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the iced water and mix until the dough forms a ball. You can add slightly more if 1½ Tbsp is not enough but be careful not to add too much water!
Press the dough into a greased /non-stick ovenproof quiche dish or springform pan about 15cm in diameter. Bake in the lower third of the oven for about 7 minutes, or until puffy and golden. In the meanwhile, whisk together the milk/cream and the eggs in a bowl. Chop the bacon and gently fry until done but not crisp. Rinse and dry the spinach leaves.
When the crust is done, arrange the bacon, crumbled feta cheese and spinach on the baked crust, pour over the egg mix and bake on a rack in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 350F (175C) and bake for a further 10 minutes or until set. You can also turn on the grill for the last minute or two to brown the top a little.

Mealie meal bread

Make a pre-mix then use it when you need to rustle up this treat in a hurry.

BASIC READY-MIX
Makes 1 130 ml (enough for two loaves)

INGREDIENTS: 500 ml (2 c) mealie meal; 500 ml (2 c) cake flour; 80 ml white sugar; 25 ml (5 t) baking powder; 5 ml (1 t) salt.

METHOD: Mix the ingredients in a bowl and spoon into clean, dry containers. Store the ready-mix in a cool, dry place for up to two months.

MEALIE LOAF
Makes 1 loaf

INGREDIENTS: 560 ml (2¼ c) ready-mix; 250 ml (1 c) milk; 60 ml (¼ c) oil; 2 eggs.

METHOD: Preheat the oven to 200 deg C and grease an 18 x 7 x 6 cm loaf tin with margarine. Put the ready-mix in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the middle. Whisk together the milk, oil and eggs and pour the mixture into the well. Stir until just blended - the mixture must still be slightly lumpy.

Turn the batter into the prepared loaf tin, spreading it evenly. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

VARIATION: For cheese mealie bread: use only 500 ml (2 c) basic ready-mix and 1 egg, add 2 ml (½ t) chilli powder and 125 ml (½ c) grated Cheddar cheese and mix. Bake for 20 minutes, sprinkle 125 ml (½ c) cheese on top and bake until done.

SALAMI CHEEZAS* (serves 2) (milky lane trade mark)
Ingredients:
2 slices of good brown bread
1 cup (or more!) grated mature Cheddar
3-4 Tbsp tangy mayonnaise (use Crosse & Blackwell)
1 spring onion (green and white parts), finely chopped
1/2 cup diced salami
Method:
In a bowl, mix the cheese, mayo, salami and spring onion well.
Spread a little butter on each slice of bread (optional, but it helps keep the topping in place as you spread it). Spoon half the mixture onto each slice and spread as evenly as possible, ensuring that you cover the bread right to the edges. Place the slices on individual plates and microwave separately for 1 minute each on high, or until the cheese in the centre starts to melt.

Homemade granola bars. While I consider the following list of ingredients to be the core of the recipe, you can change things around a bit to suit your family's tastes and preferences. In fact, in a moment I'll offer some suggestions for doing just that.
2½ cups rolled oats (old-fashioned or instant)
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup slivered almonds
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 cup raisins
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
While your oven is preheating to 300°F, spread the oats, coconut, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, wheat germ and almonds evenly on a 9" x 12" baking sheet. Bake these dry ingredients for 20 minutes, stirring them occasionally.
Meanwhile, heat the butter (or margarine), brown sugar and honey in a small saucepan, allowing the brew to simmer until the oat mixture is ready to come out of the oven. (If you or yours like really crispy granola, bake the dry ingredients an additional few minutes.) As soon as the oat mixture is out, add the raisins, stirring them into the other ingredients.
Now remove the honey from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract, then pour the hot liquid over the oat mixture and stir until all the dry ingredients are coated.
Next, press the granola firmly into the bottom of a greased 8" x 8" pan and place it in the still-warm oven to bake (at the same 300°F as before) for 20 minutes. (An 8" x 8" pan makes bars about an inch thick; if you want thinner bars, use a slightly larger pan.)

Banana Fritters


INGREDIENTS

3 medium ripe bananas, peeled and mashed with a fork then drizzled with lemon juice to prevent discoloration
1/4 cup sugar (more if you like them sweeter but I find this just the right amount coz ripe bananas are already sweet enough and you might drizzle or sprinkle something over them when serving!)
1 egg, lightly whisked
2 level cups flour
1 level tbsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. rice flour (optional: gives an extra crunch)
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. cinnamon powder
½ tsp. vanilla essence
¼ cup milk

INSTRUCTIONS

Beat the sugar, egg, vanilla and cinnamon until very nice and frothy. Add the mashed bananas and mix until well incorporated

Whisk the flour with the salt and baking powder, then gently add it into the mixture and stir. Add your milk a little at a time, until the mixture is of a consistency whereby you can pick and shape into balls using a spoon. If you need more than a quarter cup, it’s ok…go ahead and add. Don’t let the batter get too watery though!

Heat some oil in a pan, then gently using two spoons, pick a small amount of batter and ease it into the hot oil. Keep the heat on low coz they get brown very quickly. Try getting the fritters small so that they get done nicely. Once the underside is brown, gently turn them over.

Remove and drain on tissues, then serve with chopped fruits, icing sugar, cinnamon sugar, syrup, honey or ice-cream. Soooo yummy!
