Paprika Corn Fritters

Paprika Corn Fritters

This is the second recipe that I made from The Messy Baker. It’s the first time that I’ve attempted to make any kind of fritter. I don’t know why I shied away from them before. It was delicious!

Paprika Corn Fritters

I made these for a Sunday afternoon snack. They are nice and crunchy on the outside. I topped mine with some cool sour cream and Alex topped his with some fresh squeezed lime juice.

They’re very easy to make and the main ingredient is corn. I usually keep a bag of corn in our freezer. I can whip these up whenever we’re in the mood.

Charmain suggests if you have a waffle iron to pour the batter in there. You’ll end up with a more crispy fritter. I haven’t been able to replace mine yet so fried mine up in a pan.
