Method:

1) Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Grease and line a medium-sized bread pan.

2) In a large bowl, mix the corn kernels with the peppadews, eggs, buttermilk, oil and chilli flakes. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the cake flour, maize meal, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Mix in half of the cheese.

3) Spoon the dough into the tin. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Bake for 25 minutes. Cover with foil and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the bread is baked through. Allow to cool slightly, then carefully loosen the sides before turning out.
