Gluten-Free Corn Fritters
Crisp on the outside and Irresistibly light and fluffy on the inside!
Update April 2020: We have been making this a lot since staying at home and so have you! In fact, you all have gone crazy for them in recent weeks!
And I understand why!
They are the best comfort food! Savory, warm and bready and soooo quick and easy to make!
Plus they are made with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!
Happy you’re loving them too!
If you follow my Instagram stories, you know my son LOVES these savory corn fritters.
We’ve been making them for yearrrrs and lately he eats them often as an after school “snack” (can you say teen boy appetite?).
If he’s home, he’ll make them but often I’ll make them and he’ll eat in the car on the way to an after school commitment.
He loves them so much because they are crisp on the outside, irresistibly light, moist and airy on the inside.
And… they are warm, bready are melt-in-your-mouth yummy!
Total comfort food and so satisfying!
They are just like freshly made bread but with only 6 ingredients and super quick and easy to make.

Back to the corn fritters….
They are delicious all year round and we normally make them with frozen corn but they are particularly yummy with fresh corn off the cob!
And they are come together quickly! 20 minutes beginning to end.
All you do is mix all the ingredients in one bowl!
I do however, find it best to mix flour and baking powder. Then add the egg and milk. Then add the corn, scallions, salt and pepper. This order of allows for the best flavor.
Then pan fry them in a large saute pan with a little olive oil until golden on both sides!
When we removed them from the pan, I usually like to put them on a paper-towel lined plate just to absorb any extra oil. But since being home, my son has liked placing them on a baking rack… he thinks they are even crispier that way!
These savory gluten-free corn fritter will satisfy your craving for something warm and bready. Crisp the outside and irresistible light, moist & airy inside. Just like fresh bread, but so much easier and quicker to make, they are melt-in-your mouth yummy! Recipe adapted from Cooking Light. . Recipe doubles well.
