Recipe tip: To make these fritters gluten free I use Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix in place of the sifted all-purpose flour. I also use thawed frozen corn I saved from the previous summer. YUM!
3 cups oil for frying
1 cup Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbs shortening, melted
1 (12oz.) can whole kernel corn, drained
1. Heat oil in a heavy pot to 365 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, combine Pamela's Baking Mix, baking powder, salt and sugar. Beat together egg, milk, melted shortening and stir into baking mixture. Stir in the corn kernels.
3. Drop fritter batter by the spoonfuls into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, flipping once if necessary. Drain on paper towels. Enjoy!
Yields approx 12 fritters.
I almost forgot, my husband loves these fritters served with jelly or jam. At first, I wasn't so sure, but trying the fritters dipped in a little homemade peach freezer jelly made me a believer. Thanks honey!
