Corn Fritters

About: I am a wife and a mother of two. I love reading, biking, kayaking and playing the recorder.

For this recipe, you will need:

3 ears of corn

1 tsp chili powder

1/8 tsp salt

pinch of ground black pepper

3/4 c flour

2 tsp sugar

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 c water

2 tbsp melted butter

1/2 c grated cheddar cheese

Step 1: Awww Shucks!

To shuck the corn, just divide the silk fibers in half and then pull downward bringing the outer layer of the corn down too.

It's super easy to do when you are holding the corn against you when you do it.

Step 2: Boil Corn

Place the corn in boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.

Step 3: Cut the Kernels

Cut the kernels from the cob.

Then in a bowl, scrape the corn with a knife. You are going to add the scrapings to your batter too.

Step 4: Making Your Dry Mixture

Mix your flour, chili powder, salt, pepper, sugar together.

Step 5: Now for the Other Ingredients

In a separate bowl, mix the corn, corn scrapings, egg, water and cheese together.

Step 6: Combine Everything.

Now, combine all of the ingredients together.

Mix the both the dry and wet ingredients together, then add the butter and mix in as well.

Step 7: Fry Them Up!

Fry the fritters in oil that's been heated to medium high heat until they are golden brown on each side.

Step 8: Frittertastic!

Enjoy these little bits of yumminess!

I'm confused. When did the butter go in? Or are you frying these lovely babies up in butter rather than oil? I want mine to be as perfect as these look!

oh, wow, sorry edited the instructable to correct this. When you mix the flour and the dry mixture together, you add the butter then.

Let me know how yours turn out!

I made a guess and added the butter then--and the results were so good we've decided we're adding this as a side dish to the small number we make over and over. We plan to try different seasonings to match the meal. Thanks so much!

God, I love corn fritters with lots of new, genuine, Vermont maple syrup. <sigh>
