Linda's Story

Amish food is simply wonderful! I have this recipe from a great cookbook called The Best of Amish Cooking by Phyllis Pellman Good.
Corn Fritters are of two main varieties - doughy little balls, laced with corn that are deep fried and, the pancake type that are made of more corn than batter and browned in a skillet. Family tradition determines which kind are served. Nutrition would nod in favor of the pancake variety.


2 c
fresh corn, grated
2 large
eggs, beaten
3/4 c
flour, sifted
3/4 tsp
1/4 tsp
1 tsp
baking powder

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine corn and eggs.
Sift together into the corn and egg mix the flour, salt, pepper and baking powder.
Drop corn mixture from tablespoon into a 1 inch of melted shortening. Brown until golden on both sides, turning once.

Good recipe. Found that I had to add some milk to thin out batter. I also used thawed frozen corn. I also would add a dash of hot sauce. Very good fritters.
