I feel a little bad about not posting as much lately. Then again, not really : )
I’ve been busy with life, enjoying our new kitchen and the occasional sunshine we’ve been having.
I drove up north with my Mom on Saturday to spend the day with my Grandmother. It may seem a bit depressing to say I helped her with her funeral planning, but it was really a sweet day and I was so glad to help her with something important to her. Have you ever heard the saying “Tough old bird”? They’re talking about my Gran when they say that. (I say that with affection, I might add).
At 96 I’m totally amazed at her spunk. We had so much fun talking about cooking and old memories. Like my Great Uncle Ernie and how he loved to pull my pigtails at the holiday table. : )
And making homemade maple bars with warm butterscotch frosting with Grandma.
So I suppose that’s why I’m feeling so nostalgic today, and wanted to share a recipe that both my mom and grandma made, and now I love to make as well. These are super easy, and kids love to help mix the batter. Just throw it all in a bowl and hand em a wooden spoon. Usually fritters are deep-fried but we always make them this way since it’s healthier and we just always ate them that way too. Think of them like savory little pancakes, in which you can hide all kinds of veggies. : )
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk (you can add a little more milk if batter is too thick)
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 can corn, drained
Put all ingredients except corn in a bowl, mix until combined. Stir in corn.
Drizzle a small amount of oil on a griddle or in a skillet over medium high heat and drop batter by large spoon fulls. Flip over when browned on one side. (This is alot like making pancakes).
Done when second side is cooked. Serve warm with a little butter and salt and pepper.
