Who doesn't love Corn Fritters? I have been a huge Fritter fan since childhood. Corn, Apple or anything... Give me a Fritter and I am in heaven! I found this recipe for Corn Fritters in a new cookbook called Dadgum That's Good, Too! I know you will want to check this one out! I have my gluten free conversions in parenthesis and I will add more info in a note at the end.
Oil for Frying
1 12 oz Can of Whole Corn (I used frozen)
1 Egg, Lightly beaten
1/3 C Milk (I used 1 Cup)
1 1/4 C All-Purpose Flour (I used gluten free)
1 TBSP Granulated Sugar
1 TSP Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Kosher Salt
1/4 TSP Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Fill deep fryer halfway with oil and heat to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine corn, egg and milk. In a large bowl, combine flour sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir to combine.
Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into hot oil and fry in batches 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. You should see them turn on their own after about 2 to 3 minutes, but help them turn if needed. Use a metal slotted spoon to transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve immediately.
Note: Since gluten free flour needs more moisture I used 1 Cup of milk and they came out perfect. I also shallow fried these instead of deep frying turning after about 5 minutes.
