Mealie bread or sweetcorn bread is a type of South African cuisine. It is sweetened bread baked with creamed corn, traditionally buttered and eaten while still hot out of the oven.

The pie is prepared with mealies, which is an African version of maize.[1] It is typically green in color.[1][2]

Traditionally, it is packed into metal cocoa cans, lidded, and then steamed in the can.[2]

In Swaziland, it is a common street food.[3]
