Corn Fritters

Yield: 15 fritters


  • 3 cups corn kernels (fresh, canned, or thawed from frozen)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Oil (for frying)
  • Chipotle sour cream
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 3 tbsp chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, pureed
      • (Increase/decrease to match your taste)


  1. In a bowl, combine the corn, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pepper.  Add the eggs and milk, stirring to form a thick batter.
  2. Stir in the green onions and shredded cheese.
  3. In a large Dutch oven, heat 3/4" deep oil over high heat.
  4. Spoon about 2-3 tbsp of batter into the oil to fry, 3-5 fritters at a time (depending on the size of your Dutch oven).  Don't do too many at once, or the oil temp will drop too quickly.
  5. When the bottom has browned, flip over to cook the top.  When done, remove with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels.
  6. For the sour cream, combine the ingredients in a food processor and puree.
  7. Serve the fritters warm with the sour cream.
