Sweetcorn Fritters

This egg and dairy-free sweetcorn fritter recipe must be the simplest dish in the world, and makes a great accompaniment to a veggie ‘fry-up’ or just as a standby when you need to whip up a children’s supper in five minutes from a couple of store cupboard ingredients. This recipe is easy, works a treat and really does not suffer for not having eggs in. You could put any vegetable in the mix, but my children love sweetcorn, so that’s the choice we go for!

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.

  1. they were super Thankyou I added chia seeds pepitas and some capsicum and parsley too…..surprised how fantastic they were

  2. Brilliant. I added some pepper and cumin seeds and thought the simple concept for a quick nibble was great.

    I guess you throw some cut onion rings in too.

  3. Tried these on Saturday evening, they went down great with my little one. He loves sweetcorn and was well impressed to see them in a “cake”!!

      1. I found the large amount of baking powder left quite an unpleasant aftertaste, especially combined with gf flour. Any alternatives? Aside from this yum!

  4. Thank you for such an easy recipe, these were great! I added some spring onions, chipotle and coriander and dipped then in siracha -yum. Next time I’ll have them with veggie bacon and maple πŸ™‚

  5. Hey! Just wondering how ‘small’ the can is!? Do you have a weight or volume so I can get the quantities right? Thanks!!

  6. Just made these and they were great! I didn’t use any baking powder but it was still awesome = )
    Plated up on a bed of spinach with sweet chilli dipping sauce mmmmm

  7. Copied the recipe exactly to a T. Hubby hated them and wanted to throw them out and I was stuck with a plate full of semi-soggy corn fritters that taste like pancakes with corn in them. Dunno if it was because we’re Canadian and require flavour in our food or if I cooked them wrong (I cooked them like pancakes), but these are NOT going to be ending up on our table ever again. Sorry 😦

    1. Hi Vixy, I’m sorry you didn’t like them – they’re using a very popular recipe. Obviously sweetcorn fritters will have a mild flavour unless you pep them up with added flavours.
