Sweetcorn Fritters

Sweetcorn fritters, a great way to get some vegetables into your breakfast or snacks. They are soft and fluffy also simple and easy to make especially if you are in a rush and need to throw breakfast together. When you bite into your fritter, the sweet juicy corn kernels burst in your mouth, how delicious is that?

It can be a sweet or savoury snack and your whole family or friends will love. Sweetcorn fritters can be served for breakfast, snack or as a starter. They can also be fried either as patties or balls, see below.

Sweet-Sweetcorn Fritters

For sweet fritters, spread some butter, syrup, cream, jam or honey on the fritters or dust with some icing sugar. Sweetcorn fritters can also be eaten with a fruit salad, pap (corn paste gruel), custard, etc.

Savoury-Sweetcorn Fritters

For savoury fritters, reduce the sugar to 1 teaspoon and serve with tomato relish, hot pepper sauce, guacamole, a vegetable salad, a light soup etc. I love it with Sweet Thai chilli sauce.

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
