Linda's notes for this recipe:
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.

Personalize This


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.

Now your talking...Amish cooking is the best.
My favorite cookbook is "The Amish Cook at Home" (simple pleasures of food, family and faith). By Lovina Eicher
I have made the corn fritters and they are wonderful.
