Recipe – Sweetcorn Fritters

These make mealtimes with the kids (or without!) so simple, and very easy to whip up a batch and then freeze them.

Prep 3 minutes

Cook 3 minutes

Makes 3-5

Suitable for freezing



30g plain flour

half tsp baking powder

quarter tsp salt

1 large egg

1 x 200g can sweetcorn, drained (drained weight 170g)

1 large or 2 small spring onions, finely sliced

2 tbsp sunflower or canola oil for frying


  1. Put all the ingredients except the oil in the bowl of a food processor and whizz for one minute to make a batter.
  2. Heat a little of the oil in a large frying pan and drop in teaspoonfuls of the batter. Cook for 1 to 1 ½ minutes in batches of 5 until golden on the underside, then carefully turn and cook for a further minute.
  3. You can use the back of a spoon to help push the fritter onto a spatula to make turning easier.

Drain briefly on kitchen paper before serving with a mixed salad, enjoy!
