Mmm Corn fritters.
My grandma used to make corn fritters and I remember them clearly... sweet and salty with a little bit of curnch.

Today I saw them made on a TV show so I ran in the kitchen and whipped out a batch. Delicious!!!

Its funny how certain things are tied to memories like, the smell of lilacs takes me back to grandmas yard and the taste of corn fritters back to her kitchen.

My grandma was the worst cook - she has been gone for over 10 years but we still make fun of her cooking.

But I love corn fritters Chel - so please share your recipe!

Farmstand Corn Fritters
Serve these crisp corn fritters with almost anything from the grill. The batter can be covered and refrigerated up to 4 hours.

Makes 12 fritters
1 1/2pounds fresh corn (2 large or 3 to 4 medium ears), husks and silk removed
1 large egg , beaten lightly
3tablespoons all-purpose flour
3tablespoons cornmeal
2tablespoons heavy cream
1small shallot , minced
1/2teaspoon table salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/2cup corn oil or vegetable oil, or more as needed

1. Using chef’s knife, cut kernels from 1 to 2 ears corn and place in bowl (you should have about 1 cup whole kernels). Grate kernels from remaining 1 to 2 ears on large holes of box grater (you should have generous 1/2 cup grated kernels) into bowl with cut kernels. Using back of knife, scrape any pulp remaining on all cobs into bowl. Stir in egg, flour, cornmeal, cream, shallot, salt, and cayenne.

2. Heat oil in large heavy-bottomed, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Drop 6 heaping tablespoonfuls batter in pan. Fry until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer fritters to plate lined with paper towels. If necessary, add more oil to skillet and heat until shimmering; fry remaining batter. Serve fritters immediately.


I got the recipe from the America's Test Kitchen website. I love that show.

*note: I omitted the cayenne on the basis of being too lazy to go to the grocery store and mine turned out fine.

Do you put maple syrup on your corn fritters? I swear I went to a craft fair one year and had corn fritters with maple syrup on them.

Some do, but I always prefered mine with ketchup. But then again I prefered everything with ketchup.

My parents even nicknamed me "The Ketchup Kid".
