These corn fritters are delicious, the extra corn definatley gives them more flavour.
I served mine with a salad and sour cream and chilli sauce on the side. Easy and tasty meal.

Ok.. But try using fresh white breadcrumbs instead of flour. Makes them much lighter!

I halved the recipe because I had only one can of creamed corn. When I fried a couple of fritters, it was exactly the same as frying creamed corn - no fritter batter at all. I went back to the Edmonds Book recipe and added half a cup of flour, after which I got acceptable fritters.

Dear Sue,

The recipe uses 1 can of Creamstyle corn and 1 can of Whole Kernel corn drained. If you half the recipe and used 1 can of cream style corn and no whole kernel, then 1/4 cup of flour will not be enough. If you want to half the recipe again try 1/2 can each of Creamstyle and Whole Kernel drained and the 1/4 cup flour should be enough to hold it together with the egg.

I can't find 410g cans of Wattie's cream style corn at Countdown only 300g. How will this effect this recipe? Do Wattie's still make a 410g can?

Reply from The Food in a Minute Team

Dear Allen,

Wattie's does still make the 410g can of Wattie's Cream Style Corn, however, we would have to know which Countdown you shop at to know whether it is sent to this store specifically. Alternatively you should just be able to use about 1 ½ 300g cans.

This is not the best corn fritters recipe at all I was sceptical when reading the recipe how it used 2 cans of corn and such little flour. My normal recipe only uses 1 can and 3/4 of flour. But I thought I’d try the food in a minute recipe and safe to say o will not be using this recipe again the fritters tasted eggy and weren’t crisp and just tasted like they were raw from the lack of flour. I highly recommend the Edmonds recipe it it much much better and no fail

Hi Claudia
Thank you for your feedback, we're sorry you weren't happy with how the fritters turned out. The cream-style corn gives the base and we added whole kernel corns to give the whole corn texture. If you prefer to use less corn, we also have our tasty Super Easy Corn Fritters recipe that only uses 1 can of the cream-style corn you may like to try? :)
