Corn Fritters

Saw these on Paula Deen's show and we had to try them. I took this pic as I was frying them because the hubby kept snatching them, I was afraid there wouldn't be any left, lol. We did half of the mixture with a bunch of chopped scallions added in and it made them extra yummy!

1 1/4 cup self-rising cornmeal mix

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 tsp salt

1 cup milk

2 large eggs, slightly beaten

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted

1 (15.25 oz) can corn, drained (I used frozen and rinsed it under hot water to thaw it)

Vegetable oil, for frying

In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, and salt. In a small bowl, combine milk and eggs. Add milk mixture to cornmeal, stirring well. Stir in butter and corn.

Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a Dutch oven or use a deep fryer (heat to 325 degrees F). Drop by tablespoons into hot oil. Cook 2-4 minutes, or until golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels.
