Ingredients  

  • 3 cups corn kernels (See Kelly’s Note)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Sliced scallions, for serving
  • Sour cream or garlic aioli, for serving

Instructions 

  • In a large bowl, stir together the corn kernels, flour, sugar, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Stir in the eggs and heavy cream until the batter is well-combined.
  • Line a plate with paper towels. Coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with vegetable oil and place it over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, scoop 2- to 3-tablespoon mounds of the corn batter into the pan, spreading it lightly into a flat, circular shape. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip them once and cook them an additional 3 minutes until they’re golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate, season them immediately with salt and repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the pan as needed.
  • Garnish the corn fritters with scallions and serve them with sour cream or garlic aioli for dipping.

Kelly’s Note:

  • Fresh or frozen (thawed) corn kernels will work in this recipe. If you use frozen corn, drain off any excess liquid after it thaws.
