Grandma's Corn Fritters

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This one has been in our family for as long as I can remember. A long time ago my grandma used to use fresh corn, but as the family got BIG and there were a lot of mouths to feed (more to make too) she went to can corn just to make it faster. I cut the recipe in half.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine corn, eggs, milk, butter, salt and pepper to taste, if using.
  2. Add flour gradually, just enough to hold mixture together.
  3. Amount of flour depends on size of eggs (and weather according to my grandma!).
  4. Heat 1/2 inch of oil in frying pan.
  5. Form patties whatever size you'd like, I do small ones so my kids can hold them.
  6. Fry in hot oil until golden brown.
  7. Serve as side dish OR if you left out the salt and pepper serve with syrup on the side.
  8. You can also dust with powdered sugar.

These were pretty good. Seemed to have too much corn in them for me. If I make again I will probably cut back on the corn. We had them with stew. Thanks.

Really enjoyed the fritters, As Vlynn sujested their was to much corn I used 1 and 3/4 cans and found that for me their was not enough heh, all about preference I guess :).
The batch size filled me for a dinner and lunch. Chilled taste was still quite good the next day :)
