1/2 Photos of Corn Fritters
I adapted this from an Amish recipe. I love them sprinkled with a little confectioner's sugar and served with maple syrup for breakfast. You can also serve them as a side dish. The yield is approximate. Depends on how large or small you make them, and how much corn you put into it.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
- 1 1/2 cups sifted flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 1 tablespoon melted butter or 1 tablespoon margarine or 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup cooked whole kernel corn (can use up to 2 cups if desired)
- oil (for deep frying, see note)
- confectioners' sugar, for dusting (optional)
- 1Beat the egg, milk and sugar together.
- 2Sift the dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture.
- 3(If using sifted flour, you can just mix the dry ingredients together well and still get excellent results).
- 4Add the melted butter or margarine (or oil) and beat or stir briskly by hand until well blended.
- 5Stir or fold in the corn until evenly distributed.
- 6Drop by tablespoons into hot deep fat (375 degrees) and cook until golden brown.
- 7Drain on paper towels.
- 8Place on plates and dust with confectioner's sugar if desired. These are best if served with maple syrup.
- 9Notes: I usually try one first.
- 10If I find the oil is bubbling through the fritter, which would make it too greasy, I'll add a little more flour to the batter to prevent that.
- 11Also, as a shortcut, instead of deep frying, I usually pour 2 or 3 inches of oil into a large saucepan or electric frying pan and fry that way.
- 12When one side is brown, I just turn and brown the other side.
