Corn Fritters

I got this recipe in 1976 from a magazine article in Womans Day. Jo Ann York was the queen of grocery shopping back then. She wrote a book called "I Feed My Family for $16 a Week"
She used very bare-bones basic menus with small portions and said that most people would not want to cut the budget like her family would.
This recipe is very low cost and is also just plain delicious. Maybe it is the Southerner in me, but sometimes, I just want something "fried"
This is a great recipe to round out a plain menu or maybe you just want something "fried" too.
Jo Ann York's Corn Fritters
2/3 C Flour
1 1/2 t sugar
1 t baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 c corn - canned is good if drained, if you use frozen, make sure it is thawed
1/3 C milk
Mix together the dry ingredients.
Stir together the egg and milk.
Mix the egg mixture with the dry ingredients just till moistened. Stir in corn.
Drop batter by spoonfuls into 1/2 cup hot oil in medium sized skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side.


  1. These really sound delicious! I'm going to copy the recipe and give them a try :) Hugs, Joanne

  2. I have a Woman's Day issue from 1979, wherein Jo Ann York presents an article "I Feed Our Family of Four on $25 a Week!" I guess either inflation was in full swing or someone had a bun in the oven...
