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
These turned out ok, but there was a bit more batter than I was hoping in the mixture, and so they tasted more like flour than like corn. I did use canned corn, and of course, fresh corn would have been tastier.
very good batter,but i was looking for more of a corn meal coating.i realized this when i fried them,i also added a bit of garlic powder and a tblsp. of minced onion...i can see where fresh corn would be so much better, of course.
My mom made corn fritters too but her recipe uses cream corn. I think that addition might add more flavour. I'll see if I can't get the recipe off her and post it soon.
I made this last night for my grand-kids and they didn't like it at all! Tasteless! May-be some salt or seasoning of some kind.
