These fritters are great served with hot sauce as a BBQ side dish or with butter and maple syrup as a hearty breakfast. Always a hit! Add more flour if necessary to make the batter the consistency of pancake batter.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Remove all silk from corn and cut raw corn from the cob over a large bowl. Scrape the juice from the cobs into the bowl as well. Discard cobs. Stir in the eggs, flour and salt to form a batter the consistency of thin pancake batter.

  • Heat oil in an electric skillet to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). If using a large skillet on the stove, preheat oil to medium high heat. There should be enough oil in the pan to cover the fritter.

  • Use a large serving spoon to make 4 pancake sized fritters at the same time. Fry for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve warm.

Editor's Note

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

Great recipe - we have tried many to try to imitate the corn fritters my husband's mom made - this is pretty much it! I have to admit we fried them in bacon fat - a nono for a vegetarian or the healthwise - but OH so good!I would also encourage the use of superfresh corn. Thanks for the recipe Helene! Read More

This was a let down....too bland and it had a spongy texture. I won't waste good fresh corn on this again. If you do choose make this at least make some kind of dip to go with and add some bell pepper or something. You'll be much happier!!! Read More

I served these to my boyfriend as an appetizer; he was the one who rated 4 out of 5 stars. They seemed to be a little light and airy after frying but he did say they were very good. I used canned corn instead of the corn off the cob. Thanks for a nice recipe Helene. Read More

Great recipe in which to use fresh sweet corn! I made this when the farmers were all selling corn out of the back of their pick-ups:) As is it needs a little more flavor so I added some onion powder garlic powder and a little cayenne pepper. We loved them with a little butter on top! Read More
