Served warm with maple syrup or honey, these corn fritters are great for breakfast or as a snack, and easier to make than you'd think!

  • In a small bowl, mix together the cream-style corn and egg. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add the corn mixture to the dry ingredients, and mix until just blended.

  • Drop batter 1/8 cup at a time into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, turning once if the fritters don't turn over by themselves. Drain fritters on paper towels, and serve with maple syrup.

I've never made corn fritters before and this recipe came out perfect! At first I thought the dough was a little too thick/dry but I kept stirring it and did not add any liquid. I dropped the dough by spoonfulls into the deep fryer and they turned out just right!! My husband even thought they were really good. This recipe is right on I got exactly 11 beautiful fritters and didn't change a thing. Thanks I'm sure I'll make these again. Read More

Delicious but I changed sugar to 1 Tablespoon and used 1 can of cream style corn. I'll definitely make them again. Read More

These were terrific! Crisp on the outside tender on the inside. Even after they cooled and weren't crisp they had a great flavor. One of my guests was embarrassed because he couldn't stop eating them! And so easy to make too. I'll be making these again and again. Thanks for the recipe! BTW mine came out like little round balls not flat as in the photo posted. Read More

This was very good. I had never had corn fritters. I saw the maple syrup to dip them in and thought- GROSS! Made them exactly as written for my husband. I tried dipping them in maple syrup and they were incredible. I was so wrong. These are great plain as a side for bread/veg or with the syrup or dusted in powder sugar as a bread/dessert. Thank you!

This recipe did not have any taste. The texture was a bit thick too. They didn't even taste like corn! Read More

My mother used to make corn fritters and I did not get the recipe from her before her passing. When she served them jelly or preserves were the toppings of choice and it was a side dish with our dinner. This recipe is so close to hers it took all of us back to when she was the cook! I took the advice of another review which was to increase the sugar as well as the creamed corn. DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!! Read More
