Today is National Corn Fritter Day !

I found this easy recipe on the  Jiffy Mix Website last year.   On a whim I decided to give this a try for the first time.I happened to have a box of Jiffy Corn Mix in the pantry from Thanksgiving. I checked the expiration date in case your wondering 🙂 I also made a quick dip to go with it…again it was what I had on hand.   

Corn Fritters I folllowed the Jiffy Mix recipe but did find I needed to make a few changes and additions:

  •  I added at least a cup of fzozen corn (may have even been a 1 1/2 cups)
  •  I also added a little chili powder to give it a kick
  • I added a tablesooon of melted butter
  •  In the futire I would add some bell pepper (which i didnt have on hand).

  To be honest I thought this would be really simple but it did take a few tries to get em’ right!  Here’s the recipe I followed – I suggest making the modifications ablove!
