Corn Fritters

3:10 pm on 24 January 2014


  • 3 cobs of corn
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • salt and pepper
  • oil for frying


Strip off the corn's husks and cut the kernels from the cob. Hold the cob upright and run a knife down the cob.

Put 2/3 of the corn into the food processor, and the rest into a bowl. Into the bowl, add the finely diced onion, 1/2 cup of grated cheddar and the red pepper.

Crack the eggs into the food processor along with 1/2 tsp of salt. Give the contents of the food processor a good whirr.

Stop and add the flour and baking powder and whiz some more. Add the contents of the bowl to the food processor and pulse a couple of times to combine.

Tip the mixture into a bowl and set aside ready to fry.

In a pan, heat some oil. Fry spoonfuls of the batter, turning once.
