Old Fashioned Corn Fritters

Friday, May 8, 2015
Here is a great recipe for some little old fashioned corn fritters.


These little fried cakes are very much like donuts, however, they are chock full of fresh farm-fresh corn, cut right off the cob.


A tender little treat that melts in your mouth and eaten while still a little warm with a light coating of powdered sugar.


I can't tell you how addicting these are, make two batches and watch these little gems fly right off the plate.


I use a brown paper bag to shake them into coat evenly and they're just the right sweetness.


If you've never tried this Southern little donut hole as the kids refer them too, you better whip yourself out a batch.


There's nothing like a little fritter in your life to go along with any Southern-style meal!

It's A Southern Thang!



When I first came to Florida, I had never heard of a corn fritter.


Then all the local Restaurants served them as an appetizer on the table.


This copycat recipe is from Dixie Crossroads in Titusville Florida, it's pretty darn close to perfect!


One bite and I was hooked.

Rolling In Powdered Sugar


As I mentioned I shake them in a brown paper lunch-size bag, however you can just out the sugar in a pie plate if you don't have one.


When you first take them out the oil, place them on paper towels to drain off the oil


Then after a few minutes shake them or roll into powdered sugar.


I usually roll them twice.


I love a thicker sugar on them, it gives them the perfect sweetness needed.

Donut Holes



These are a smaller version of the old fashioned kind of fritters.


The usual fritters are typically dropped in oil fried very large.


I like the bite-sized donut holes.


Making them smaller, the old fashioned fritters will cook up quicker.


They are easier to eat too.

How to cook Old Fashioned Corn Fritters

  1. Mix the egg, milk baking powder, salt, butter and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Stir in the flour, add the corn. just until evenly blended.
  3. Heat oil to medium-low heat, until using a drop of batter starts to sizzle
  4. (medium heat on my stove is number 4).
  5. Drop by teaspoons full in the hot oil and cook on both sides. I use a small melon ball size scoop to make them even in size.
  6. Note: I usually cut one open and make sure the heat is correctly cooking them inside when browned to be sure they are cooked all the way.
  7. Drain on paper to towels. Cool around 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. Shake into powdered sugar in a brown paper bag or roll them in a pie plate. 
  9. Eat them while still warm. These made around 24 double the recipe if you want to feed more than two people! These are addicting!
