Skillet Corn Fritter

Cooked corn fritters resting on a white paper towel.

Using pancake mixture as the base, along with canned corn, this recipe creates fluffy and light skillet corn fritters. The fritters are both sweet and savory and can be served with breakfast or dinner. They are golden brown and crisp on the outside, and fluffy on the inside.

Once cooked they can be served as a side, a base to be topped with goodies, or simply eaten as a snack. The size you cook them can also be adjusted depending on how you plan to serve them. You can make them as small or large as you desire.

There are many pancake mixes on the market and all tested to date work well. Our preference is for a buttermilk-style instant pancake mix. If you have the time and ingredients, you can also use a homemade pancake mix.
