Children’s Cookery Classes Sweetcorn Fritters
These are popular in southern American states and are great eaten with friends and family. Children love them and are really easy for them to make them. For big parties, simply double the quantities. You can make them with bananas instead of sweetcorn. With just a few store cupboard essentials you can make these really tasty Sweetcorn Fritters, but you can also make them with peas or courgettes a mix of sweetcorn and peas, the options are endless. Great for kids, toddlers and weaning babies too! We made this in one of our cookery classes in Bristol and the kids loved it.
Makes 8/10 fritters
You will need:
30 grs plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp milk
198 grs sweetcorn
2 spring onions
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1,- Sieve the flour, baking powder and pinch of salt into a large bowl.
2,- Separate the egg by tipping the yolk from one half of the shell to the other. Let the egg white fall into 1 bowl and drop the yolk into another.
3,- Add the maple syrup and milk into the egg yolk and whisk them together. Pour this mixture over the flour. Stir everything together to make a batter.
4,- Whisk the egg white until stiff, be careful not to over whisk or it will go flat.
5,- Use a spatula to fold the egg white into the flour mixture, carefully stirring around the side of the bowl and across the middle.
6,- Tip the tinned sweetcorn and chopped spring onions into the batter mixture. Fold them in- try to be as light as you can here.
7,- Heat the oil, drop in a tablespoon of batter and cook for 1 or 2 minutes until the undersides are golden. Flip over, cook the other side and serve. It will be nice with a tomato and basil salad!
