Sweet Corn Fritters

Serves 4

Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour (or alternative gluten free flour)
  • 2 tbsp cold sparkling soda water
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 x 340g can corn kernels, drained
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

Preparation

  1. Combine the flour, soda water, and baking powder in a bowl and whisk together to form a smooth batter. Stir in the corn and cayenne, and season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 15 minutes until chilled.
  2. Heat the oil in a shallow frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir the batter, then carefully drop a spoonful into the pan-it should spread out to be 3-4in (7.5-10cm) across. Stir the batter again and add 2-3 more spoonfuls, depending on the size of your pan, and, working in batches, cook for 4-6 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon or spatula and place on paper towels to drain. Serve with aioli (garlic mayonnaise) and a crisp salad.

NB: The fritters will be crisper if the mixture is cold when it goes into the hot pan. Use fresh corn, sliced off the cob, if you can.
