24 fritters


  • 3 egg whites

  • 1 ⅔ cups fresh corn kernels

  • 3 egg yolks, beaten

  • ¼ cup sifted all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 dash ground red pepper

  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks.

  2. Mix corn, egg yolks, flour, salt, and red pepper together in a large bowl; fold whipped egg whites into the corn mixture.

  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, drop corn mixture into hot oil by the tablespoonful in several spots without crowding the pan; cook until browned and set, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Notes:

Use a high-quality oil for frying to get the best results.
