Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 10 servings


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 egg, well-beaten
  • 2 cups whole kernel corn reserve the liquid on the side. or creamed corn
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter or pareve margarine
  • confectioner's sugar optional
  • canola oil


  1. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl add the egg, corn, and melted butter and blend well. Add the flour mixture and combine. If the batter is too thick, a little of the reserved corn liquid can be added to get the consistency you desire. (Water or milk can also be used instead of the reserve corn liquid.)
  2. In a deep fryer add about 2 inches (or more) oil. Heat until the temperature reaches about 375 degrees. Drop the mixture by the spoonful into the oil. The frying should take between 4-6 minutes. Turn them only one time, until all are golden brown. You may have to do this in a few batches. Do not crowd the fritters.
  3. Remove and let drain on a wire rack with paper towels underneath. Sprinkle with Confectioner's sugar if desired.
