Ellen’s Simple Corn Fritters


February 26, 2012

My eldest daughter, who was 8 at the time, went on a week long summer cookery camp at Source Sligo Cookery School. The cookery school is run by Eithna O'Sullivan, an excellent chef and teacher who has run her own restaurant in the past.

One of the recipes was corn fritters so I'll hand you over to my daughter to explain how to cook them....

Corn fritters are easy to make & very tasty. You can do it yourself if you're 8 or older. Be careful when cooking because it's hot!

My Dad had not tasted corn fritters before when I cooked them at home for him he absolutely loved them - so I hope you do too!
