Servings 4 people


  • 2 cups corn kernels fresh, canned or frozen
  • 3 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1 small red pepper finely chopped
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 3/4 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 25 grams butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • Mix together corn, spring onion and red capsicum in a bowl.
  • Stir in the egg yolks then flour and baking soda. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until soft peaks form when the beater is lifted from the whites.
  • Gently mix the whites into the corn mixture, taking care not to overmix.
  • Melt a knob of butter and a drizzle of oil in a frying pan over a moderate heat, cook large spoonfuls of mixture in batches until golden on both sides and cooked through. Add more oil and butter to the pan as needed.



  • Transferring the fritters to a preheated oven (180°C) helps to make sure the fritters are cooked through and also keep them warm while the others are still cooking.
  • To substitute regular flour for the self-raising add 1 rounded teaspoon of baking powder to ¾ cup regular flour.
