Corn Fritters.


  • 3 cups peanut oil for frying
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon shortening, melted
  • 1 (12 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • Maple Syrup
  • dash of bourbon (optional)
  • dash of balsalmic vinegar (optional)

Now Cook:

1. Heat oil in a heavy pot or deep fryer to 365 degrees F.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Beat egg, milk, and melted shortening together in a small bowl. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture. Stir in corn.

3. Working in batches, drop fritter batter by spoonfuls using a ladel into the hot oil. Fry until golden.

4. Warm maple syrup in a small pot. Adding a few drops of balsamic vinegar and bourbon to the syrup is a nice touch.

5. Remove fritters with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Hint: Serve with good smoked bacon.
