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!

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.
NAN’S CORN FRITTERS
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….. )
