Aunt Dot’s Corn Fritters

My Aunt Dot sent me this recipe way back during Corn Week, but I didn’t get a chance to try making them until tonight.  With maple syrup and a fried egg, these are the perfect breakfast for dinner!

Aunt Dot’s Corn Fritters

Cut and scrape kernals from 5 ears of sweet corn (about 2 1/2 cups).

Place corn and pulp in a large bowl, then stir in:

  • 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Beat in another bowl until peaks are stiff but not dry:

  • 2 egg whites

Fold the egg whites into the corn mixture.  Heat in a large nonstick skillet on high heat until hot:

  • 2 Tbsp butter or vegetable oil

Drop in the batter, a heaping tablespoon at a time.  Reduce the heat to medium and cook until browned, about 2-3 minutes.  Turn once, do not pat the fritters down.  Cook the second side until browned.  Take care not to overcook them.  Serve immediately.
