Sweetcorn Bake

I got this recipe from my SIL Trish, who keeps me in good supply of new recipes to try.  Thanks Trishy!  This is a great side dish for with a braai (barbecue).  The lovely light texture of this dish reminds me of a soufflé and has the same rise and fall as a soufflé too.  There are a myriad of other ingredients you could add; like parsley, mustard powder, finely chopped crispy bacon, sautéed mushroom, or even using a different or stronger cheese; you get the idea.
