Corn Fritters

Ingredients for corn fritters mixed in a bowl


My friend shared a recipe for corn fritters, which he normally made as part of his familiy’s Thanksgiving meal. His grandmother used to prepare it and now, he did.  I’d never tasted corn fritters before and wanted to try them.  The recipe was very simple and included corn (of course), milk, flour, salt and baking soda.   Straight from the pan, nice and hot, the fritters were delicious.  They were a hit in my home on Thanksgiving Day. Thank you, John!


Note: Recipe coming up!

Ed. Note:  Recipe has been posted below.  Oh!  I forgot to add that I halved the recipe, since I didn’t prepare the fritters for a lot of people.  


An Italian Family Recipe


2 – 15 oz Cans Regular Corn (Drained)

2 – 15 oz Cans Cream Corn

1/2 Cup Milk

3 Cups flour

1 1/2 Tablespoons baking powder

1/2 Tablespoon salt


Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt until mixed.  Pour all 4 cans of corn and the milk in a mixing bowl.  Slowly add flour mixture until a thick batter forms.


Heat grease pot or skillet with canola oil (in skillet use about a half inch of oil and keep it at that level) to 360 degrees.  Ladle mixture into hot grease. Cook until golden brown and drain on paper towels.


Serve hot!  Enjoy!


To reheat leftovers, pop a few fritters on a cookie sheet and heat in oven.  (Microwave will make them mushy….. )

  1. Just about any veggie can be frittered, which is nice when you want a treat. If you make them again, try adding some scallions and minced roasted red peppers. So good!

  2. They look really scrumptious! I bet they are quite addictive.



  3. Do you use any dressing with your fritters? I love mine with pesto or salsa. Yum!

  4. Hola Paz, I prepare corn fritters too. Your mixture with corn kernels looks interesting, I’ll be waiting for the recipe.

  5. Hi Paz: They look incredibly delicious. I love anything corn…keeping the recipe…hope all is well.. talk to you soon….

  8. I agree with Rosa’s assessment. I also wonder whether they can be baked instead of fried.

  9. Hey! These look delicious! They remind me of hush-puppies.

  10. Hi Simona: I wonder, too. I’ll try and see what happens!

    Hi David: I’ve never had hush puppies before. I’ll have to look it up.


  11. My mother used to make what she called spoon bread, using these ingredients, adding an egg and put the whole thing in a buttered casserole dish and baking it. If I find the recipe I’ll post it.

  12. Hi Christine: I look forward to seeing your mom’s recipe when you post it!
