Fresh Corn Fritters
  • 2 cups Corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Additional sugar
  • In a food processor, combine Corn, sugar and salt. Pulse just until mixed and Corn is crushed. Add egg yolks, flour and baking powder and process just to blend. Transfer to bowl.

    In mixer bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold 1/3 whites into Corn mixture, then fold in remaining whites.

    In deep skillet or fryer, heat oil to 375°F. Drop batter by tablespoons and fry, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar and serve immediately. Serves 6.
