Sweetcorn Fritters
An American classic, these fritters are one of the best ways to use fresh sweetcorn! 


2 oz plain flour
6 7 tablespoons water 
9 oz sweetcorn (use frozen sweetcorn or cut off the kernels from approximately two cobs)
Freshly ground black pepper
Sunflower or corn oil for frying



1.If using sweetcorn cobs, slice the kernels off with a sharp knife, taking care not to cut too deeply.

2.Sift the flour into a medium-sized bowl, and add enough of the water to form a smooth paste. Add the sweetcorn and salt and pepper. Mix well.

3.Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan, and drop dessertspoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil. Turn when the underneath of the fritter starts to brown and fry until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper and serve.
