  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1 lb. can cream style corn
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1/2 to 1 cup canola oil Can use any kind of cooking oil.


  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix corn and egg; add to dry ingredients, and stir. Heat canola oil in large skillet over medium heat. 
  • Drop batter by large spoonfuls into hot canola oil. Fry about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Makes about 12 fritters


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.
