Corn Fritters with Honey Butter

Our absolute favorite way to eat corn?
Grilled & rolled in butter!

For July's Improv Cooking Challenge, which is spectacularly hosted by Kristen, I decided I would stretch my guys' palates a little. What came to mind was one of my favorite tastes of childhood: corn fritters in Grandma's tiny kitchen.
It was a bit of a challenge to come up with a recipe that was gluten-free & refined-sugar free; but I think I nailed it first try. Here you go:

First, I made sure I had plenty of honey butter on hand.

Then I got a large mixing bowl and stirred up all the wet ingredients. (This, by the way, is an excellent frozen corn we found at Costco.)

I sifted my dry ingredients into a smaller bowl, and then mixed it all together. (I can't believe I didn't snap a picture of the batter! I guess I was too busy watching the oil heat...)

I dropped tablespoon-sized portions globs into the oil & watched them brown.

Scooped them out with my long-handled sieve onto paper toweling.

Here's the hubs' first plate:

& his first bite:

There were no survivors!


  1. I love corn fritters!! These look fantastic and it looks like your son is really enjoying that corn ;) Yum!

  2. Yum! Your corn fritters look fantastic! I've never tried corn fritters... but your photos make me want to give them a try ASAP!

  3. Elizabeth,
    Your fritters sound just right for sweet and savory.
    Great collage for your family's favorite way to eat corn!
    Thanks for checking out my corn and pasta salad.

  4. Melody....I was so hoping someone would do fritters! Something I love but I've never made for myself. These look absolutely scrumptious!

  5. Oh my yum - do these look good! And the honey butter is the perfect topping - thanks for sharing your recipe!

  6. I haven't had corn fritters in years, such memories. Yours look wonderful and just how I remember them.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my Improv Cooking Challenge entry: Fritos Crusted Pollock.
