Simple and Delicious Corn Fritters

I love the versatility of fritters. They are so adaptable to what ingredients you have on hand. And you can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And these simple and delicious corn fritters come together so quickly. They are light and slightly sweet. And so yummy!

Do you love one bowl recipes? Well you will love these Corn Fritters! They come together all in the one bowl and it truly is a simple recipe and quick recipe. These Corn Fritters are great recipe to make with your kids. They can help with so much of this recipe, younger children can help with measuring ingredients, cracking eggs and stirring the mixture. Older children could help with chopping the spring onions and chives (or using scissors to cut them), grating the cheese and even cooking them on the pan.

These fritters are made with a mix of fresh corn and creamed corn. You could make your own creamed corn if you like, though I just grab some from the store. I would not use frozen corn in this recipe, though you could. I find frozen corn just does not taste as sweet. So if you didn’t have fresh corn I would recommend trying the canned corn kernels which I find closer in taste to fresh corn.

These Corn Fritters would be delicious for a special Mother’s Day Brunch with an avocado salsa and even bacon on the side. We often just serve these as they are with fruit and vegetables. You can also pop these Corn Fritters in the lunchbox for school lunches. I do prefer them warm straight from the pan as the texture is lighter but they are nice enough cold too.

I quickly cook corn on the cob for this recipe by boiling a prepared cob for two-three minutes. I then cool under running water and slice off the kernels.

    Should the olive oil go in the mixture or just used to cook them in?
