These easy Corn Fritters are sweet, delicate, and filling. They can be prepared with fresh, frozen, or canned corn. Simple recipe – great taste!

Made with sweet corn, bell pepper, herbs, eggs, and flour, these corn fritters are bursting with flavor and hold their shape well. Kids and adults love them, and they make a great snack or a light lunch.

Now that I’ve inspired you to make these Corn Fritters, let’s get to down to basics.

What Kind of Corn to Use?

These can be made with freshfrozen (and thawed), or canned corn with great success.

  • If using fresh corn, just slice the corn off the cob with a small sharp knife, turning the ear as you go.
  • If using frozen corn kernels, thaw them first, by putting them in a sieve and running them under warm water.
  • If using canned corn, drain the liquid using a strainer.

Main Ingredients

Flour. Use regular all-purpose flour.

Baking Powder. Gives a nice lift to the fritters.

Egg. Can substitute with “flax-egg” for vegan option.

Corn. Use fresh, frozen (and thawed), or canned corn.

Bell Pepper. Jalapeno can be used instead, for a bit of spiciness.

Parsley. Cilantro or dill can be used instead.

Chives. Or scallions.

Olive Oil. I prefer to use extra virgin olive oil, but any oil will do.

Salt & Pepper.

How to Make Corn Fritters

1. Prepare the batter by whisking together the flour, baking powder, egg, and water in a medium bowl. When the batter is smooth, add the olive oil, salt, and pepper and mix well.

2. To the batter, add the corn, bell pepper, parsley, and chives. Mix it well and set aside.

3. Heat up a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour about 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil onto it. Once the oil is hot, add one heaping tablespoon at a time of the corn mixture, and flatten out the tops slightly to make the fritters even. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. If they brown too quickly, reduce the heat.

How to Store and Reheat Corn Fritters

Store the fritters in an airtight container. They can last in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat, just microwave or reheat on the stove for a few minutes.

How to Make these Fritters Healthier

If you’d like to save some calories and make these fritters healthier, I suggest baking them instead of frying. To do that, you can:

a) Lightly spray a non-stick muffin tin with oil, and divide the corn mixture between the 12 muffin cups. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350°F.

or

b) Lay parchment paper on a cookie sheet and add a heaping tablespoon of the corn mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350°F. Baking these corn fritters on parchment paper means we don’t need oil to keep them from sticking.

What to Serve with Corn Fritters

Serve these fritters with a fresh salad on the side for a filling and healthy lunch. Or serve these as a snack with a dipping sauce on the side. Here are some dipping sauce ideas:
