Corn Fritters are Cheap and Easy to Make.

Corn fritters not only taste really good but they are cheap, simple and very quick and easy to make. They are perfect on their own as a snack or as a side dish for the main meal. These vegetarian-friendly corn fritters have a wonderful sweet buttery taste and are so easy to make anyone can whip up a batch in no time at all. In fact, in my house, I always left the children to get on with making these and just stepped in to help with the cooking.

These tasty little corn fritters go great with barbecue food and can be cooked ahead of time, wrapped in foil in stacks of three or four and then reheated on the grill at the last moment. They take about five minutes to warm through this way.

Canned or frozen sweetcorn work just as well as fresh. You can use any type of sweetcorn for these fritters, fresh, canned or frozen, they all work just as well. Sweetcorn is a great little vegetable that not only tastes good but it does you good too.It is a powerful antioxidant and as sweetcorn cooks, it releases high levels of ferulic acid which can help to battle cancer.

If you want to make these vegan-friendly then use an egg substitute instead of real egg. They taste just as good. I have also tried making these using wholemeal flour, they are a little heavier tasting but still really good.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: serves six people.


  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 large free range egg, beaten
  • pinch baking powder
  • 130ml warm water
  • 350g sweetcorn, can, fresh or frozen
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Mix everything together well and add a little more flour if the mixture seems too runny, or a little lemon juice if it seems too stiff. At this point, you can add a little extra flavouring if you like. For example - a couple of sliced spring onions, a little chopped red, green and yellow pepper, diced mushroom or even some curry powder or paste etc.
  2. Heat some oil in a heavy-based pan over a medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of the corn fritter mixture into the pan and fry, turning until they are golden brown on both sides.
  3. Don't try to cook too many of them at one time, three or four in a large frying pan is enough.
  4. Drain the corn fritters on some kitchen paper or a clean T-towel.
  5. Keep the fritters hot in a warm oven until you are ready to serve.

You can use this recipe to make tiny, little corn fritters, try frying a teaspoonful of the mixture for a couple of minutes each side. These can then be used to float on the top of soups in place of croutons.

They go really well with corn chowder or something like leek and potato soup. Children also love these little fritters on their own as a snack, with a tomato sauce or a little salsa to dip them in. I hope you enjoy these corn fritters as much as we all do in my family. Please let me know in the comments section below. Thank you.
