  • 1 litre cold water
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 200 g maize meal
  • 20 g margarine
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp. dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp. dried coriander
  • 1 can Bull Brand Corned Meat, diced into 1cm cubes
  • 20 g margarine, melted
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. In a saucepan, mix the water, beef stock cube and salt and bring to the boil. Whisk in the maize meal, adding a little at a time, whisking continually to prevent lumps from forming.
  2. Stir using a wooden spoon, mashing the pap against the sides of the saucepan to prevent lumps from forming. Reduce the heat to a medium heat, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Stir again and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until cooked.
  3. In a frying pan, add the margarine, onion and garlic and fry for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the dried herbs and stir.
  4. Add the diced Bull Brand Corned Meat in a large, non-stick pan until soft.
  5. Add the herb onion mixture and corned meat to the pap and knead well to combine.
  6. Transfer to a baking tray and press into the tray evenly.
  7. Place into the fridge to chill and set.
  8. Cut into rounds using cookie cutters and brush each cake with melted margarine.
  9. Heat a nonstick pan and grill the pap cakes for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until they form a crust or until they’re golden.
  10. Optional: Serve with a dipping sauce, either cream cheese or yoghurt.
