Hello Dear Reader,
These little golden morsels are real comfort food for me, there is something about sweet juicy corn in a soft and light batter that speaks to my heart and soul. They are just so delicious with some bacon and maple syrup or with some sweet chilli sauce or tomato relish, just-so-good. They are a doodle to make, just do yourself a favour and make the batter up hours before or even the day before you fry them. It allows plenty of time for the gluten in the flour to relax and the fritters will be light and fluffy not doughy and tough.
Ingredients for Old Fashioned Corn Fritters, clockwise from top left-
2 cups of frozen corn, 240 grams plain flour and 3 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 3/4 cup of milk(I use powdered milk), 30 grams of melted butter, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon each of finely chopped parsley and garlic chives
Whisk together the flour and baking powder
Whisk together the milk and egg
Pour milk and egg mixture into flour mixture and whisk until smooth
Now add in the corn, melted butter and herbs
Mix well to incorporate, now let sit for a few hours or overnight to let the gluten in the flour to relax
So, from just a few humble ingredients you have a delicious breakfast or light lunch or dinner. They would also be lovely served with sliced ham or corned silverside.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
