Ingredients

  • 2 cups finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 cup each all-purpose flour and medium-grind cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon each baking powder garlic powder and onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup frozen corn thawed

Method

Stack 2 sheets of good-quality parchment paper; place insert of 5- to 6-quart oval slow cooker in centre. Adding 3 inches, trace around bottom; cut out shapes. Grease insert; line with double layer of parchment paper cutouts. Set aside.

In small bowl, stir together Parmesan, rosemary and thyme. In large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, baking soda, salt, pepper and all but 2 tbsp of the Parmesan mixture. In separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter and eggs; stir into flour mixture just until combined. Stir in corn.

Scrape into prepared slow cooker, smoothing top; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan mixture. Cover top of insert with 4 layers of paper towels; secure with slow cooker lid. Cook on high for 1 3/4 hours. Reduce heat to low and cook until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Turn off slow cooker; let cool, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

Using parchment paper, lift out onto rack; let cool completely. Peel off parchment paper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.)
