Homemade Corn Fritters

Well-made corn fritters are a rarity, but when I find them, I devour them.  Some restaurants serve them with syrup and the dish then becomes a sweet n savory mix that melts in your mouth.  Lovina does make some delicious corn fritters and with the corn crop now about ready I'm sure these will be finding their way on to the Eicher supper-table soon.  Elizabeth Eicher, though, immersed in corn this summer, might find the idea of eating corn this summer a bit tough to stomach.  Try this recipe for a delicious corn fritter!

 

4 large ears corn
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the kernels from 4 ears of corn and place them in a medium bowl. Using the back of a knife, scrape the cobs over the bowl to extract the juices and pulp. The mixture will resemble scrambled eggs.  Beat the egg yolks in a large bowl until light. Beat in the the flour, sugar and salt and pepper. Stir in the corn.
Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold them into corn mixture. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat and grease lightly. Drop the batter by small spoonsful onto hot skillet and cook until golden brown.

I made the corn fritters for supper tonight.  I thought they were quite tasty!  Of course, I dipped them in ketchup... but will probably eat the leftovers for breakfast, so I will try the syrup.

I used my leftover corn from last night, and there was probably pushing 2 cups of it (a smidge less, I would guess).  I really like the idea in this recipe of separating the eggs and beating the whites.  Makes for a very light batter, and more airy of a product!   I might have to try this with my zucchini pancakes and see how they turn out Smile

Re: Homemade Corn Fritters

About how many measuring cups is four ears of corn?  I use lots of frozen corn and would need to know a good guesstimmate of the volume to use.

Re: Homemade Corn Fritters

I'm thinking about a cup of corn an ear.....anyone else have anything to add on this?

I had leftover corn on the cob after supper last night... I cut it off the cob, and 3 good-sized ears were probably about 1 to 1 1/2 cups.

My MIL makes corn fritters, but I don't think you would like hers at all.  Basically, they are pancakes with corn mixed in... blech.  Not flavorful at all.  But I would definitely be willing to try the "real deal"!
