Corn Fritters recipe

Try Martha Stewart's corn fritters recipe from the "Corn" episode of Martha Stewart's Cooking School.

Yield: 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • Coarse salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups yellow corn kernels (from 2 ears corn)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Honey, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and cayenne. Add milk and egg to flour mixture and stir together to create a batter. Add corn and fold to combine.
  2. Heat 4 inches oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over high heat until a deep-fry thermometer reaches 375 degrees. Working in batches, using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons, drop batter by the tablespoon into the oil. Cook, turning occasionally, until cooked through and deep-golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes; adjust heat as needed to keep oil temperature between 350 and 360 degrees. Transfer fritters to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Season to taste with salt, and serve immediately with honey.
