if you follow me on instagram , you would’ve noticed a series of nostalgic home-made dishes straight from my moms kitchen. Including a selection of treats and bakes that we only trust Royal Baking powder with. I remember growing up with tons of traditional foods and while heritage day for many means braai or pootjie, as a third Gen South African with a rich indo-african background its far more than that.
one of the recipes i have decided to share with you all is the modern twist on a traditional mielie bread or miele lagan as we used to call it. My mom was a single parent and used to work most of the time so i would often spend lot of time at my paternal aunts home in Springs. she would make this meile lagan in a dark brown pyrex dish and top it with poppy seeds. my fellow blogger Verushka aka @thespicegoddess shared her version of Corn Muffins with me and it just took me down memory lane.
The recipe is super easy, great for brunch, lunch boxes and i even sliced one in half and filled it with spiced beef (pastrami) and grated cheese (thank god im not a fashion blogger). Verushka and I have teamed up with Royal Baking powder to bring you and awesome competition in which you can stand a chance to win a R700 Yuppiechef voucher + a Royal Baking powder hamper.
