These corn fritters are simple to make and are great for holiday get-togethers.


  • 1 gallon cooking oil
  • 1 12 ounce can whole kernel corn
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Fill deep fryer halfway and heat to 350°F.

  2. 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, stirring to combine.

  3. Drop batter by the spoonful into the hot oil and fry in batches for 6-8 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.
