Corn Fritters Recipe

Corn fritters are a southern staple you can make at home. While this is a fried food, you can keep them for getting too greasy by lining your plate with paper towels and setting the fritter down onto them after frying.

Ingredients for corn fritters.

Shown are the ingredients to make the fritters, most of which you probably already have in your fridge and pantry.

Prep Time: Cook Time: Total Time:
10 minutes 30 minutes 40 minutes


  • 2 cans (32 oz.) corn
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

Mix your dry ingredients together. Make sure the four, baking soda, sugar, salt and pepper is evenly whisked together. In a separate bowl begin to mix your wet ingredients. Whisk your eggs and milk together until combined. Slowly add your egg and milk mixture to your dry ingredients and whisk together. It should come together and make a slurry.

Combine wet and dry ingredients to create a slurry
Add your corn to the slurry and fold together

Fold in your corn.

Add some butter and oil to a nonstick pan and heat. Drop in a spoonful of batter to the hot oil and let fry for 3 minutes on each side.

The bubbles around the edges of the fritter mean the oil is nice and hot.
Flip when the side frying is brown and crisp.

Fry your fritters to your liking. I like mine crisp so I will fry them a couple extra minutes or add extra oil if I feel they need it.

There are many options as condiments or garnishes for your fritters. My favorite is sour cream and chives but greek yogurt is also a good alternative. You can also use honey as a topping for your fritters.

I enjoy mine with sour cream and chives.
