Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour and powder in a large bowl.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and milk.
  3. Stir in corn and butter.
  4. Stir gradually into dry ingredients until just blended.
  5. In a deep fryer, electric frying pan or chicken fryer, heat oil until 375 degrees.
  6. Drop batter into heaping teaspoonfuls into hot oil and fry for 2- 3 minutes.
  7. 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.
  8. Drain on paper towels.
  9. 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!!
