  • 3 cups corn kernels fresh, frozen or cannned
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Add vegetable oil to a skillet over medium high heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine the corn, all purpose flour, baking soda, sugar, salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl whisk the egg with the milk.
  • Add the egg milk mixture into the bowl with the other ingredients. Stir to combine. The batter will be very thick.
  • Lower the heat on the skillet to medium and use a ¼ cup measuring cup (or similar) to drop scoops of the batter into the oil, pressing them flat into a pancake shape.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess oil and repeat with remaining batter.


Fritter  Toppings: sour cream, salsa, pickled jalapenos, chives, crumbled bacon, honey, etc. 
Corn: if using fresh, shuck corn and remove all silk. Gently break up kernels. For frozen, let come to room temperature and drain and excess water. For canned, drain thoroughly and pat kernels dry with a paper towel.
