Servings: 6 servings


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. white or black pepper
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup whole or low-fat milk
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter; melted
  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup scallions or green onions; finely chopped
  • vegetable oil; enough to fill 1/4 inch of your skillet or frying pan


  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, cumin, sugar and pepper.
  • In a second mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients including egg, milk and butter. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients until just combined. Be sure not to over-mix.
  • Fold in corn and scallions. Allow batter to sit for 15 minutes, preferably chilled.
  • Heat 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in skillet over medium-high heat to 325°F-350°F. Spoon approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of batter into hot oil. Fry for about 2-3 minutes, turning halfway. Fritters will be a golden brown.
  • Place a wire rack over a paper towel lined baking sheet to drain excess oil. If you are making a large batch I recommend keeping them warm in the oven while frying.
