When I was a little girl, I used to beg my Aunt to make corn fritters for me. Oh, they were sooo good!!! She lived near the local farmers and always had fresh corn. She would mix up this simple recipe and fry them on the griddle.

We always ate them with pancake syrup on them. Yummy!!

4 large ears of corn

2 eggs separated

2T all-purpose flour

1T. sugar

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Unsalted butter

Instructions: Cut the kernels from two ears of corn, then with the back of the knife, scrape the cobs. Put the corn and scrapings into a bowl. Beat the egg yolks in a large bowl until light. Beat in the flour, sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the corn. Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff. Fold them into the corn mixture. Heat a griddle over medium heat and grease it lightly with butter. Drop the batter by small spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until golden. About 30 seconds each side. Transfer the cooked fritters to a lightly buttered serving platter and keep them warm in a low oven while cooking the remaining fritters.
