Corn Fritters

Being from the South, I am a great fan of Southern food, like this.  Corn Fritters.  It's almost like a crispy corn donut, but savory with a hint of sweet.  I added some shredded Chedder cheese and some diced jalapenos to these to give them a little kick.

If you're not from the South, you should give these a try.  You might fall in love with them!

2 C flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 14-ounce can cream-style corn
1 C frozen corn kernels
1 to 3 T diced jalapenos (the kind from a jar)
1/2 C shredded Cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 C butter, melted
1/8 to 1/4 C sugar, depending on how sweet you want them
Peanut oil for frying

Mix all ingredients except oil with a whisk.  Heat the oil to 350 degrees. Using a spoon, scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the batter and hold close to the surface of the oil to prevent spattering.  Use a finger to slide the batter into the oil.  Fry, turning frequently, until golden brown.

    1. Sure! You could substitute vegetable oil or canola oil. I wouldn't use olive oil or another oil that has a high smoking point. Thank you for asking!

  2. Will the recipe need to be adjusted if I don't use the jalapeƱos? I want to make these for my kids.

    1. Hi, Mandy. Thanks for asking. You can absolutely leave out the jalapenos. It won't change a thing. Enjoy!
