Sweet Corn Fritters

Sweet Corn Fritters

Sweetcorn Fritters make a fantastic light meal, snack or even lunchbox filler and are a firm family favourite, loved by children and adults alike.

They're quick and easy to make and can be served with lots of different additions to make them more gourmet.


Makes approximately 6 fritters / 2 portions.

  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup soda water
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup sweetcorn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs (I used basil, but mint is delicious too)
  • Oil for frying
  • 6 slices of streaky bacon
  • Tomato relish
  • Mayonnaise or aioli
  • Fresh spinach leaves
  • Feta cheese


  • Whisk flour, egg and soda water together until there are no lumps.
  • Add the sweetcorn and a generous grind of salt and pepper and mix together.
  • Finely chop the basil and mix in.
  • Set aside for about 10mins.
  • Put a drizzle of oil into a fry pan and warm to a medium low heat.
  • Scoop 1/4 cups of batter into the pan and gently fry. (Don't overcrowd the pan)
  • When bubbling at the edges, flip over and gently squeeze down with a spatula.
  • Remove from the pan onto a wire rack when firm to the touch.
  • Fry the bacon and drain on paper towel.
  • Plate in a stack, adding a layer of each ingredient in each layer.
