Old Time Corn Fritters

Mom used to make these every year..I had forgotton about them and how good they taste! OLD TIME CORN FRITTERS ..what is a fritter you ask? A fritter, by definition, is food that is mixed with batter and then dropped into hot fat.Using a large spoon, gently drop (really don’t drop, more like, place. This is hot oil after all.) some of the batter into the oil. They will expand a little, so space them apart and do not overcrowd the pan. Flip once and remove when golden brown. fry these for 3-5 minutes ..then Drain on a paper towel, salt and serve.

Serve fritters warm with maple syrup.
Serves 6.

3 eggs, beaten
2 cups crushed corn
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/4 c. flour, approx
Oil for deep frying

Mix together corn, beaten eggs, milk, melted butter, baking powder, salt and pepper, adding just enough flour to hold fritters together.
