Classic Corn Fritters Recipe

76389Corn fritters are one of those snacks that I cannot remember having tasted for the first time because I’ve loved eating them for so long. This recipe is one I came up with a long time ago and has gotten good reviews from those who’ve tried them. They are great served hot as a snack or with a meal but my brother always loved them cold and coated with sugar, either way they are a delicious and addictive treat. Just don’t blame me if you end up making these more than you feel it’s healthy to.
