Looking for a sweet tiny bite for your next party? Why not try fritters? Sweet corn and fresh peas are added to a fluffy pancake batter and fried until golden brown. These fritters are great served with a spicy dipping sauce or drizzled with honey or maple syrup. In the South, fritters are enjoyed at breakfast or paired with a heaping plate of BBQ. Fresh corn gives these fritters a sweet bite while peas give them a light spring touch.
The best part about this recipe is that this batter is really a blank canvas for any vegetable you have on hand, such as corn, zucchini, carrot, sweet potatoes or even apples. Simply mix and match your fillings to create a new fritter to showcase at your next event or family gathering.
A few notes: Use a tablespoon or cookie scoop to drop the fritter batter into the fryer, this keeps the fritters a consistent size. And keep a close eye on them - they do puff up quickly (and burn just as fast). Just fry until golden, drain on paper towels, and keep warm in the oven. And finally, make a double batch. These go quickly in my house; I find that tiny hands love anything they can dip, so make plenty.
