Corn Fritters

Prep time: 20 min   |    Cook time: 10 min   |   Ready In: 30 min


  • vegetable oil, as needed

  • 3/4 cup cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • salt & pepper, to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

  • 3/4 cup milk, plus more if needed

  • 1 egg

  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels

In a deep saucepan, add vegetable oil to a depth of approx. 3 inches.

Heat over medium high while preparing the fritters. Also, preheat oven to 200 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Beat together the milk and the egg, then pour into the dry, adding more milk if necessary to make a thick but smooth batter. Stir in the corn.

Drop the fritters by a large spoonful (around 1/4 cup) into the hot oil. Raise the heat to maintain a fairly consistent temperature. Cook fritters in batches, turning once until they are nicely browned, 4-5 minutes per batch. Drain the fritters.

Keep them warm in the oven until ready to eat. Serve the fritters with maple syrup, salsa or aioli sauce.
