A healthier cafe favourite
Michelle's corn fritters.
Corn fritters are a staple of the cafe brekkie, but they're super-easy to make at home. The fresh corn kernels just burst with sweetness in your mouth.
1 fresh corn cob
2 medium eggs
½ cup wholemeal self-raising flour
½ cup low-fat milk
1 green (spring) onion, finely chopped
olive oil spray
2 tbsp mint leaves
Place corn cob upright on a board and cut away kernels. Set aside. Whisk eggs in a large bowl with a fork. Stir in corn kernels, flour, milk and half the onion.
Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with olive oil and place over a medium-high heat. Drop heaped ¼-cup measures of egg mixture into pan in batches, to make 6 fritters, and flatten each with back of a spoon. Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through.
Serve immediately, sprinkled with mint leaves and remaining onion.
Tip: Make sure you flatten the fritters well in the pan. If they're too thick, they won't cook through properly.
