Mini corn fritters for cocktails or afternoon tea

These were a real hit with my guests. Make up a corn fritter mix (I use whole kernels rather than creamed corn). Drop small quantities into non-stick muffin pans so that when cooked they are quite shallow, no more than about a centimetre high. Pop them out of tins to serve either hot or cold (mine were cold). I put a very small amount of Aoili - Edmonds sell a plastic bottle of a lovely garlicy one – in the centre just to hold a basil leaf in place. Then put more Aoili on the basil leaf and top with a cherry tomato. You can hold all these in place with a toothpick but I found that it is easier for people to just lift up the mini fritter.

That sounds tasty mindi1.
Try separating the egg and whisking the white to soft peaks,fold into the fritter batter,and it will give you a lovely light texture.

I'm going to try your recipe, it will be very popular. Thanks.

Hi griffo4. I just use the recipe from the Great NZ Cook Book.
1 cup plain flour, 1 tspn BP, 2 eggs, I 410g tin corn. I add some cayenne pepper or similar to give a bit of oomph.

I add chopped coriander and a small amount of minced chilli to corn fritters and that gives them a lift too.
