Beat the egg yolks. One by one, add the milk, flour, baking powder and salt, while beating continuously to form a thick, smooth mixture.

Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture.

Using a non-stick frying pan, spoon small quantities at a time of the mixture into the pan and fry until golden brown and firm underneath. Sprinkle mealie kernels on top of each flapjack and flip, then cook until firm and golden-brown on the underside too.

Serve with bacon and maple syrup.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
