This recipe brings back memories. My mom and older sister used to make these and they are yummy!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄3 cup milk
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups leftover corn or 1 (15 ounce) can corn, drained
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- oil (for frying)
- salt and pepper
- Combine flour and powder in a large bowl.
- In a medium bowl, beat eggs and milk.
- Stir in corn and butter.
- Stir gradually into dry ingredients until just blended.
- In a deep fryer, electric frying pan or chicken fryer, heat oil until 375 degrees.
- Drop batter into heaping teaspoonfuls into hot oil and fry for 2- 3 minutes.
- You can also do this using less oil in a skillet, just flatten them a bit with the back of the spoon and then turn them like pancakes.
- Drain on paper towels.
- Some people put confectioner's sugar or syrup on these, we eat them plain.
I have added salt and pepper to the recipe. I am used to having them as a savory dish, so salt and pepper were always part of it. However, because some people serve them with maple syrup, etc. I did not list s & p when I first posted. Also, the kind of corn you use is important...sometimes the corn itself is tasteless. I am sorry if anyone made these and they turned out bad...I know they can be a lot of work :), but I also know they can be really good.
Karen: You are right. You must use good tasting corn. Corn off the cob works best. I personally do not like fritters with canned corn at all. I like your recipe. I don't add the salt and pepper because we eat them with syrup. Yum Yum!!
my son made these for dinner the other night ( he's 11 ) and they turned out beautifully, so thank you on his behalf for sharing this recipe and for giving us a light and simple meal - which my son says he will definately make again
