Sweet Corn in the Oven


If there’s a snack I love to eat, it’s Sweet Corn in the Oven very warm, fresh from my grandmother’s hot oven.

Since I was a child, corn has been one food we always ate at home. Whether for curry dishes full of coconut sauce or just boiled or oven-baked sweet corn, as a snack.

Corn is the king at my grandma’s kitchen and I LOVE it!

Now that I no longer live near my grandmother, I miss that call in the middle of the day “come by my place, I have an amazing corn for you” or “today I have a nice surprise, but I won’t tell you what it is until you come by!”. ahah

So now I do it myself, it reminds me the good old days. And I love it, exactly because it reminds me of my grandmother and her wonderful cooking.

Perhaps my biggest inspiration in the kitchen!❤️

The big secret to be very similar to grandma’s recipe is to let the corn roast to become crunchy.

The rest, only my grandma knows, but I keep trying…

  • 1 tbsp  olive oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp  cumin
  • 1 tsp  paprika
  • 1 tsp  oregano

  • Arrange the corn on a tray and brush it with oil.
  • Add salt, pepper and remaining spices (except coriander).
  • Wrap the spices all over the corn, with the help of a brush or even your hands. In this case, hand rubbing is much easier!
  • Pour a little olive oil over the corn and place in a preheated oven at 180º, for 30 minutes.
  • If you want it to become more crunchy, leave another 5 min on the grill function.
  • Sprinkle with coriander and serve.


You can even spread a little butter on the corn, it's madness! But it's a little more caloric, just so you know.
For a sweeter touch, add a strand of maple syrup.
You can also dip the corn in a yogurt, garlic and herb sauce. It is divine!
