These delicious little corn fritters are wonderful with syrup, or simply dust them with powdered sugar.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 can whole kernel corn (drained (or about 1 1/2 cups frozen, thawed or fresh))
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar (or syrup)

How to Make It

1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Combine eggs, milk, and butter. Fold in dry ingredients [add more or less flour - enough to bind batter]; add corn last.

2. Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 365°.

3. Drop the fritter batter by tablespoons into hot vegetable oil and deep fry about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Work in batches of 4 to 6, depending on the size of your pan or fryer.


4. Keep the fritters warm in a warming drawer or low oven (about 170° F to 200° F) as you fry more.

5. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve with syrup. Serve  warm.
