CREAMED CORN FRITTERS

CREAMED CORN FRITTERS


Ingredients

2
cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen
1/2
onion minced
1
serrano pepper minced (optional)
2
tablespoons butter
1/2
cup heavy cream
1
pinch salt
1
pinch sugar
1
pinch ground nutmeg
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
cup milk
2
cups flour
1
large egg
2
quarts oil, for frying


Directions

Mince your onion and pepper and cut your corn off the cob if using fresh corn.
Add butter to a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat. Once hot, add onions, pepper, and corn.
Cook for 4-5 minutes until onions are soft.
Add a pinch of salt, sugar, and nutmeg. Then add cream and cook for another 2 minutes until cream starts to thicken.
Pour mixture into a large bowl and add milk. Let cool for five minutes.
Add egg to bowl and mix in well. Then add baking powder and flour.
The batter should be very thick, but scoopable. If it’s too runny, add another 1/2 cup of flour.
Fry large spoonfuls of batter in oil at 350°F. They will need 4-6 minutes to cook through depending on the size of your fritters. The finished fritters should be golden brown and puffed.
Let drain on a paper towel before serving. Serve hot!
