I have been meaning to post this recipe for a long time; these are absolutely delicious! Dixie Crossroads is a fantastic seafood restaurant in Florida, and they serve these before each meal. At the restaurant you can buy the fritter mix, but they also give out the recipe so you can make them from scratch.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 large eggs (beaten)
- 1 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 cup whole corn, from a tin (drained)
- icing sugar, as needed
- In a large pot or deep fryer, heat your preferred oil to deep fry with to approximately 350 degrees F.
- In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
- In a separate bowl, combine beaten eggs, milk, and butter.
- Whisk egg mixture into dry ingredients; stir in corn last.
- Drop by tablespoonfuls into hot oil; deep fry about 5 minutes, or until fritters are golden brown.
- Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve as soon as possible; best when served very warm.
Lennie, this is just what I was looking for! I am going to experiment with baking this recipe to lower the fat content, but they were so puffy and cake-like on the inside, crispy on the outside. I made these with Granny Smith apples and cinnamon instead of the corn and that was fabulous too, although the corn was better. Thanks a lot!
These are ON POINT Dixie Crossroads all the way. I lived in Titusville and have missed these since moving away.<br/>I add a bit more canned corn and sometimes add blueberries in place of the corn for a yummy blueberry fritter. I prefer topped with a pile of powdered sugar.
I didn't like this recipe. Too much batter and not enough corn. Tasted like pancakes. My mother used to make fritters which were all corn with just enough batter to keep it together. I didn't get her recipe before she passed away, but will still look for it.
