About This Recipe

Fritters are a delicious breakfast that you can pack veg into. These smoky corn fritters are no exception! They are so summery, delicious, and crispy. This sweetcorn fritter recipe is so quick and easy and can be made in around 10 minutes, your whole family will love them!

I think these are best served fresh for brunch with a spicy mayo, some chives or spring onion and even with some fetta. Using the smoked paprika in them emulates that smoky flavour that we all associate with barbequed corn on the cob. It is a such nostalgic flavour executed in an elegant way. You need to try these!

There is no need for any fancy equipment with these. All you will need is the ingredients listed above, a bowl, a spoon, and a non-stick frying pan.


Question: My batter is too runny, so my fritters aren’t holding there shape, how do I fix this?

  • Just add a little more flour until you batter becomes thicker. Don’t forget to adjust the seasoning when you do this though. Add a touch more salt.

Question: Can a freeze and reheat my corn fritters?

  • Yes absolutely! When you want to reheat, them just pop them in a pan on low heat with some oil for 5-7mins on either side. Then turn the heat up and fry each side for a further minute to make sure they’re crisp.
