last week I made black bean soup, I wanted to have something corn like to go with it. I have tried to make corn bread but my family doesn't like it as much as I do so I wanted to try and make corn fritters--truth be told I have NEVER made them before. So I plugged in corn fritters and came up with this recipe:
Heat oil in a heavy pot or deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Beat together egg, milk, and melted shortening; stir into flour mixture. Mix in corn kernels.
Drop fritter batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels.
*I decided I want to have my fritters taste a little more corn like so I subbed in 1/4 cup of corn meal and lowered my cup of all purpose flour to 3/4 cup--it was yummy! I might even make it half and half next time!*
