Oven Baked Buttery Corn On The Cob

Summer is a tad delayed , rumour has it that it is currently on holiday in Barbados , keep the faith after there is beauty in each and every day. I've been watching the birds whilst I cook and find it rather engaging , the way they swoop bob and weave. I think that we need to to celebrate life more ,  we are too quick sometimes to announce with forthright the bad situations. Of course that isn't to say we can't moan but a little prospective goes a long way I am finding nowadays.


4 corn on the cob

100g low fat spread or butter

4 squares of foil so that we can parcel up the corn on the cob

Additional flavouring make crushed garlic / crushed peppercorns etc if you wish


Preheat the oven to 200 C

Place each corn in a parcel of foil then place in the oven for around 35 minutes depending on your oven

Top with the low fat spread/butter seal the corn up into a foil parcel

Open carefully and either eat on its own or serve with another food of your choice, any spare left over once cooled could for instance be added to tuna pasta mayonnaise ( which is what I did )

Disclosure ~ I received some vouchers as part of the Orchard scheme from Tesco to buy this and the recipe is mine ~ I wasn't asked to do this


  1. Yum! I cook our corn on the cob just like this! Perfect for this time of the year x

  2. Sorry but I don't understand the concept of left over corn on the cob - especially when it looks as delicious as yours does.

  3. I adore corn on the cob - smothered in LOTS of butter. Or mayonnaise and some kind of spice! We have a chilli and lime mix we like to sprinkle on top of corn on the cob <3

  4. Yummy, I love corn on the cob, It is simply delicious and perfect all year round! x

  5. Well corn on the cob will go a very long way to keeping me cheerful - lovely.

  6. You can't beat fresh corn on the cob, love it x

  7. I always boil cobs in slightly sugared water - I shall have to give this a try when my cobs ripen. #nowastefoodchallenge

  8. I love corn on the cob but don't eat it all the often. Seeing this has made me want to rush out a buy a few!

  9. Mmm nothing beats corn on the cob! Lovely! Thanks for linking up with the no waste food challenge, but could I ask you to link back to the challenge page so I can include you in the round up? :)
