Lindsey's Corn Fritters

Lucky me!  Lindsey did some cooking yesterday and shared....I have never eaten a corn fritter so this was a special treat.  As promised, they were crisp on the outside yet soft and fluffy in the middle....how perfect is that!  Thank you, daughter, for sharing!

We do like a little "bite" to our treats so a jalapeño was chopped up fine and added to the mix...yum!


Corn Fritters
adapted from Yummy Tummy

1 can sweet corn, drained and divided
1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 jalapeño, chopped fine, seeds and membrane removed (unless you like really HOT)
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Oil for frying

Puree half of the corn in a blender and set aside.

Mix the flour and the baking powder in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg until fluffy.  Pour in the milk and mix well.  Add the corn puree and the remaining corn kernels and stir.


Add the flour mixture and mix well.  Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil.  When the oil is hot, fry the batter by the spoonful until golden brown.

Drain the fritters on a paper towel and serve.

Fritters may be served with hot sauce or Ranch dressing.

  3. When I was in college, every Wed. was baked ham day and it always came with corn fritters. For dessert, we had them with syrup. Don't think I've had them since but these make me want some.
