Corn Fritters MMMM

It is dinner time. You have the cabinets open waiting for something to speak to you. A lonely can of corn is staring back at you begging to be used. But who wants to eat canned corn? So here is a recipe that I like for Corn Fritters:

1 15 oz can corn (undrained)
1 egg
1/2 t. salt
1 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1 t. sugar

Honey for dipping

Heat your frying oil to 350. To check it with out a thermometer use a wooden spoon and hold the end touching on the bottom of the pan. If bubbles come up like champagne bubbles you are good!

Stir all your dry ingredients together. Add the egg and the whole can of corn. Stir to combine. If the batter is more cookie dough-like than thick pancake batter with corn in it.....add a bit of water.

Use a scoop of your choosing. I like to use my smallest one. Keep in mind your fritters are going to just about double in size upon frying. I have noticed that my fritters turn themselves over when one side is finished cooking. From time to time they need a slight push. Use tongs to do so.

Once golden brown all around transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with salt.

Serve with honey. Other options are powdered sugar or ranch dressing.

Not the most fat free suggestion but this blog is about pinching pennies...not fighting fat.
