Tonight’s dinner was homemade bread, vegetable soup and a tasty treat Becksie has been meaning to make for a while…… sweetcorn fritters. These little fritters are uber tasty, uber easy and made a soup and bread dinner a little more filling.
First thing one needs to do is make a thickish batter – this is done by mixing plain flour, an egg, some milk and salt and pepper and a pinch of baking powder. You want it to be the consistency of really think paint. Becksie just guessed so we can’t give exact amounts (note to self if you plan to blog a recipe – weigh one’s guesstimates) but we’d guess at 100grams of flour, 100mls milk, one egg, salt and pepper to taste and a pinch pf baking powder.
Drain a large tin of sweetcorn
Add the sweetcorn to the batter and mix it up
By this stage your fritters should look a little like this.
Heat a pan of oil (a few centimeters deep)
Drop spoon fulls of the mixture into the hot oil and fry until golden on both sides
Place on some kitchen roll (unless you are Team Pugh then loo roll steps into the breach – CLEAN – UNUSED loo roll that is) – pat off the extra oil and serve immediately.
