Dixie Crossroads Corn Fritters

I wanted to let you guys know that I changed my domain name to http://www.sandyskitchenadventures.com/.  It is no longer http://www.lighterrecipes.com/. I felt that since I was cooking a variety of different recipes, a domain name called lighter recipes just did not seem appropriate anymore. This way I could feature an assortment of recipes because I really love to cook all kinds of foods :) If you could pass this along  that would be great!

I remember eating corn fritters growing up in a small town in Florida. There was a small mom and pops fried chicken restaurant that we always loved going to called Bonnie Lee's. They would always give you extra pieces of their yummy fried chicken when you ordered and we never could forget their yummy corn fritters sprinkled with powdered sugar. They were so heavenly! I found this recipe at http://www.food.com/ and the taste is pretty close to the corn fritters served at Bonnie Lee's. The person who posted this recipe states they came from a wonderful seafood restaurant also in Florida. They would serve these yummy crispy fritters before the meal. You could purchase their mix already made at the restaurant, but they also gave out the recipe if you wanted to make them from scratch. They aren't exactly the healthiest to eat considering they are deep fried in oil and would definitely expand your waistline if you ate too many so be forewarned!  They are still great for an occasional treat! I usually cut the recipe in half. Enjoy!

Dixie Crossroads Corn Fritters

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons white sugar
2 large eggs (beaten)
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup whole corn , from a tin (drained)
powdered sugar , as needed

In a large pot or deep fryer, heat your preferred oil to deep fry with to approximately 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine beaten eggs, milk, and butter. Whisk egg mixture into dry ingredients; stir in corn last. Drop by tablespoonfuls into hot oil; deep fry about 5 minutes, or until fritters are golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve as soon as possible; best when served very warm.
