Corn Fritters III


  • 1 1/4 cups unsifted flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 3/4 cup milk

Sift flour with baking powder and salt. Beat egg white until stiff. In medium bowl beat yolk, milk and 1 1/2 Tbsp. salad oil until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until smooth. Fold in egg white, gently. Add corn and stir until well combined. In electric skillet, slowly heat oil at least 2 inches deep to 375 degrees F.

We've written to Robin asking her how much corn she uses. Hopefully she will write back soon.

Should the egg white be beaten? Folding in gently (per instructions) would suggest that, but would like to know for sure. Thanks!

Editor's Note: One recipe says Egg Whites (stiffly beaten) in the ingredients, the other has to beat them in the instructions so in either case, I would say Yes.
