Corn fritters with creamed corn recipe - Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to ensure the dry ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the beaten egg and milk until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until a smooth batter forms.
  4. Stir in the creamed corn, chopped green onions, and cilantro (if using), mixing until everything is evenly incorporated into the batter.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. The oil should be about 1/4 inch deep in the skillet.
  6. Once the oil is hot, carefully drop spoonfuls of the batter into the skillet, using about 2 tablespoons of batter for each fritter. Flatten slightly with the back of the spoon.
  7. Cook the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy. Use a spatula to flip them halfway through cooking.
  8. Once cooked, remove the fritters from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  9. Serve the corn fritters hot, with your favorite dipping sauce or enjoy them as is.

For gluten-free corn fritters, use a gluten-free flour blend instead of all-purpose flour.
For a vegan version, substitute the egg with a flaxseed or chia seed “egg” (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons water) and use non-dairy milk.

Corn fritters with creamed corn recipe – Tips

  • For extra flavor, add a pinch of smoked paprika or cayenne pepper to the batter.
  • Serve the corn fritters with a dipping sauce made from sour cream mixed with lime juice and zest, or a spicy aioli.
  • Make sure the oil is hot enough before adding the batter to the skillet to ensure crispy fritters. Test by dropping a small amount of batter into the oil – it should sizzle and float to the surface.
  • To keep the fritters warm while cooking in batches, place them on a baking sheet in a 200°F oven until ready to serve.
