Sweetcorn Fritters is another wonderfully versatile fritter recipe that is sure to be a hit with the whole family. I like a bit of chilli heat in these, but if your family is spice-averse, then simply omit the chilli flakes from the batter. If you are also making the Courgette Fritters (opposite), simply put both pans on the hob side-by-side and cook both types of fritter at the same time. Double bubble!

How To Make Sweetcorn Fritters
Lighter Serve: Low-fat sour cream, sliced avocado and sriracha sauce
Family Serve: Sour cream, guacamole, grated cheese and sriracha
- Put the flour, baking powder, eggs, crème fraîche, sweetcorn, spring onions, paprika, chilli flakes, milk and a generous grinding of salt and pepper into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
- Spray a large frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium Working in batches of 2–3 fritters, spoon ladlefuls of the mixture into the hot pan and cook for 2–3 minutes until the underside is golden. Flip the fritters and cook on the top side until golden. Set the cooked fritters aside and repeat until all of your mixtures is used up.
The fritters are now ready to serve with your choice of accompaniments.
Set the fritters aside to cool to room temperature, then transfer them to a large, labelled freezer bag and freeze flat for up to 3 months.
TO REHEAT FROM FROZEN
These can be defrosted fully in the fridge before reheating or reheated directly from the freezer. If defrosted, place on a foil-lined baking tray and transfer to an oven preheated to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4 for 8 minutes, until crunchy and golden. If cooking from frozen, cook the same way but increase the cooking time to 12–14 minutes and ensure that the fritters are piping hot all the way through before serving.
