Corn Fritters

A Short History

Corn fritters have roots in Native American cuisine, with the early settlers adopting corn as a staple ingredient in their cooking. Over time, the recipe evolved into the fritters we know today – a beloved dish across many cultures, particularly in Southern cooking in the United States. This simple yet satisfying dish showcases the versatility of corn, transforming it into bite-sized pieces of golden perfection.

Tips for Making Corn Fritters

  • Sifting Dry Ingredients: Begin by sifting the flour, salt, and baking powder together. This not only helps to aerate the flour, making the fritters lighter but also ensures that the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Mixing Wet Ingredients: Whisk the eggs and milk together before adding them to the flour mixture to create a smooth batter without lumps.
  • Adding Corn: Stir in the cooked whole-kernel corn until well incorporated. The corn adds a natural sweetness and texture to the fritters.
  • Frying: Heat the deep fat to a medium-high temperature before adding the batter. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil, and fry until they’re golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Ensure not to overcrowd the pan to allow for even cooking.
  • Serving: Serve the corn fritters hot for the best taste and texture. They can be enjoyed on their own or with a dipping sauce such as a spicy aioli or a simple dollop of sour cream.
