Corn Fritters - The Southern Lady Cooks

Southerners know how to eat and these Corn Fritters will just melt in your mouth.  If you’ve never had a corn fritter you are missing out on some good southern eating.  Serve them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We had them this morning for breakfast with honey and sausage. YUMMY!  They are great as a side dish, wonderful with molasses and easy to make. You could double this recipe if making fritters for a crowd.  They keep well for several days and can be reheated.  They make a great snack.  Most kids like them, too.

Corn fritters Ingredients Needed:

All-purpose flour

Baking powder

Salt

Can cream style corn

Egg

These are wonderful served with butter and maple syrup, honey, or sorghum on top. They are so sweet and delicious. Great reviews on these fritters!

“I just made these corn fritters but I added diced sweet onion and shredded sharp cheddar cheese and they’re delicious.”-Daryl

“I made these tonight and sampled them while they were cooking.. these are a keeper!” – John

“My husband was so excited to see me making these! He dipped these in cane syrup and almost fell over. I’ve always thought myself a pretty good cook but I’m from California and my husband is from Georgia, so trying to satisfy both our tastes has been difficult. However, with your website I have made some great food both of us love! Thank you so much! – Marcee

Notes

If you want to make these using frozen corn, fresh corn or canned whole corn. I use about 1 1/2 cups corn or one 14.5 ounce can whole kernel corn and 3/4 cup buttermilk in the batter. These are wonderful served with butter and maple syrup, honey, or sorghum on top.
