Sweetcorn fritters are the perfect easy recipe for the whole family. These crispy sweetcorn fritters take 20 minutes to make and are loved by kids and grown-ups. This recipe is so simple you could get the kids involved in the making and cooking process. Let them measure, whisk and help with cooking the fritters. This recipe makes 10 fritters - perfect for lunch or dinner served with potatoes and salad. Serve your sweetcorn fritters with a dip like sweet chilli sauce for an added kick of spice or mayo for a light, creamy taste. You could try this recipe with other tinned vegetables too like peas or beans.

Add flavour with spring onions, a splash of soy or chilli sauce, or chopped coriander. Children will love them just as they are, but grown-ups can add hotter flavours.


  • 100g plain flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • Seasoning
  • Medium egg
  • 150ml milk
  • 198g can sweetcorn kernels
  • Salsa, either store-bought or home-made, to serve


  1. Sift the flour, baking powder and seasoning into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, add a medium egg and gradually beat in 150ml milk to form a smooth batter.
  2. Drain a 198g can sweetcorn kernels, pat dry on kitchen towel, then add to the batter mix with any thing else you fancy (see the tip!).
  3. In a frying pan, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Once hot, fry spoonfuls of mixture for about 2 mins each side until golden and crisp on each side.
  4. Serve the sweetcorn fritters with a salsa or a quick salad of peppers, spring onions, tomatoes and cucumber.

What a funny story! :)

Not impressed. Pretty much pan cakes with sweet corn in them. I've tried other better recipes where you blend some of the corn into the mixture so less flour required and a better overal sweetcorn product.


Just made these, had them with oak smoked bacon, grilled tomato and a nice fresh egg. Lovely! Thanks.


I made these last night lovely fritters but I made too many to eat in one sitting (I trippled up the recipes!) and then I heard a noise in the night and got up and there was a little shrew and it was eating all of the fritters, I hit at it with a bat but it was too quick for me, it had nibbled away and entirely consumed almost three of the fritters, I sat up for the night watching the fritters but I must have nodded off because another one was gone by the morning. I put them in the fridge but somehow the shrew got in there wheile I was at work and it got the rest. great recipe though will make these again if I can solve the shrew issue


Going to cook these, wanted to know if you can freeze them?

i find them hard to flip at times is that cause to much milk 4 the batter can someone help i love these things cheers people lol george


Wanted to give the kids something different for a change and came across this recipe. With 3 kids under 4 i dont have alot of time on my hands but these were super quick and easy to make. We all loved them! I added spring onions i already had chopped in the freezer, dash of soya as suggested and some crushed coriander leaf i had in my herb rack and they were gorgeous. We had some left over for the next day which we ate with chips and kids dipped them into tomato sauce (as kids do).


To bulk them out for a main meal serve with grilled bacon, sour cream, sweet chilli sauce, avocado and a salad they are fantastic!


the recipe says 1 tsp. you just read it wrong

Great recipe - the kids love these sweetcorn fritters. So sweet and tasty


These are also fantastic with mango chutney instead of salsa. They make a great side for pizzas too :)


Had these today for lunch with a salad, just to use up an open tin of sweetcorn. Added chopped sweet red pepper to batter, and Aldi salsa on top. Absolutely yummy lunch, will be making these for grandkids later this week. Love the idea of serving instead of Yorkshires.

Just made these for lunch, added some chopped red pepper to the batter and sweetcorn and they were yummy !:-)


It says abbreviated 1 tablespoon of baking powder it should be one teaspoon have to throw first lot away now!! :(


just made these with just simply sweetcorn no extras fantastic with chips and beans relived a childhood memory not had them for 20 yrs


Had a pregnancy craving for sweetcorn...these were just what I needed to satisfy my need!!!!


i made these for myself and my little girls.they went down very well....they are great as a snack but no good for a main meal as they are not very filling.


I made these last night and they were delicious! I didn't have any salsa so I added a green pepper chopped up, some chives and a bit of paprika. the family loved them!!
