Corn Fritters with Adobo  Sauce

Corn Fritters with Adobo Sauce

Corn fritters are crispy on the outside and light and corny on the inside. They’re a fun side dish or snack, and the adobo sauce gives them a nice kick of heat.

Corn Fritters Recipe

Not that long ago, I had a wicked taste for some fried corn fritters.

Being certain I could whip up my own batter without following a recipe had me concocting in my Kudos Kitchen like a mad scientist in no time.

The results were quite yummy for the tummy and not too shabby to look at either.


1-1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup corn meal (I used yellow)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons roasted cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cups evaporated milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 beaten egg
1-1/4 cups frozen sweet corn
Canola oil for frying (approximately 3 cups)

-In a large bowl, whisk the dry ingredients.
-In a small bowl, whisk the wet ingredients until blended.
-Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and, switching to a wooden spoon, mixing well to combine.

-Add the corn and stir thoroughly.
-In a deep, high sided skillet, or large Dutch oven, bring the canola oil to a frying temperature of 375 degrees.
-Using a small cookie dough scoop or a large spoon that has been dipped in the hot oil to reduce sticking,drop the batter by dollops into the hot oil and allow to fry until they’ve turned a deep golden brown making sure you turn them to insure even browning and cooking.
-Remove the fritters with a slotted spoon after frying and allow them to drain on some paper towels.
-Season them with additional salt immediately after they come out of the hot oil.
-Continue with the remaining batter.
-Meanwhile, combine your ingredients for your adobo dipping sauce.


**You can prepare this in advance and refrigerate if you like a cold dipping sauce for your fritters.**

1 cup mayonnaise
1 small can chipolte chilies in adobo sauce (3-4 chilies removed and chopped)
1 teaspoon roasted cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1-1/2  tablespoon honey
salt and pepper

-In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients until creamy.


-Serve your hot fritters along side a healthy (by that, I mean size-wise. LOL) dollop of adobo sauce and enjoy!

  1. I've never had a corn fritter! Looks like I've been missing out on something good all these years!

  2. We love corn fritters here – and play with them all the time – adding things – we love dipping them in honey or maple syrup – or a combo but that sauce looks good!

  3. I LOVE the idea of using the maple syrup here! It's 9 am on a Sunday morning and you have me ready to make some more just to dip them in the syrup! YUM!

  4. I had never even heard that word but these look simply amazing!

  5. Oh Renee! It's like you know me! I love anything corn related! I will have to try these eventually.

  6. I love the idea of corn fritters. The adobo dipping sauce sounds just perfect. 🙂
