Sweet Corn Fritters

sweet corn frittersI’ve decided I may have to name my Wednesday blog “Food Porn” since lately I have been posting recipes for food we all enjoy but know we shouldn’t have.  So if you’re trying to eat healthy like I am, then you can either make a half batch, do like I did and make a full batch but only eat a few, or just enjoy the pictures and the recipe (too bad there’s no Smell-a-Vison app!)

Sweet Corn Fritters


oil for frying

1 cup flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp sugar

(salt and sugar are more to taste depending on if you like your fritters sweeter or saltier.  This particular recipe is more even, so you can either dip them in ranch dressing or maple syrup when you’re done, whichever you prefer.)

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 cup milk

1 Tbsp. melted butter

1 can (14 oz.) sweet kernel corn, drained


Heat oil in a heavy pot, at least 3 inches deep, until a tiny amount of batter will sizzle when dropped in.

In a medium bowl, combine all the other ingredients.

Drop fritter batter by heaping teaspoonfuls into the hot oil and fry until golden.

Drain on paper towels.

Serve warm with your favorite sweet or savory condiment.

One thought on “Sweet Corn Fritters

  1. Boy did that recipe bring back memories! When Billy and I were married almost 50 years ago, someone gave us the corn fritter recipe. We loved them with syrup [was ranch style dressing even available back then] and it was a favorite for years. Can’t imagine why I stopped making them somewhere along the way. But I can almost smell them looking at the pictures and I sure enjoyed my trip down memory lane….thanks Teressa
