Corn Fritters and Applesauce

Circle B Kitchen

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white sugar

2 cups whole kernel corn

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tablespoon shortening, melted (I use Earth Balance Shortening Sticks)

1/2 cup milk

vegetable oil

applesauce for serving (click here for the best homemade applesauce!)


1 In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir the corn kernels into the dry mixture.

2 In a separate mixing bowl, beat egg, melted shortening and milk together. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir until blended.

3. Place a fairly large skillet over medium high heat and pour a thin film of vegetable oil into the pan (or spray liberally with cooking spray). When good and hot, drop the batter by large spoonfuls into the pan and cook until golden. Flip and continue to cook until completely cooked through (about 4 minutes per side).

Serve warm topped with applesauce and sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar.
