- 2 large eggs
- 2 C. yellow whole kernel corn (if using canned, drain)
- 1/4 C. unsifted all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- 2 to 3 Tbs. vegetable oil
Separate eggs, placing whites in a small bowl. Let the whites warm to room temperature. In medium size bowl, combine egg yolks, corn, flour, salt & pepper. Stir until mixed. With electric mixer, beat egg whites until frothy. Add sugar & beat until stiff peaks form. Fold beaten egg whites into corn mixture. In large skillet, heat 1 Tbs. oil. Spoon corn-egg mix into pan to make 3 x 2 inch ovals. Fry only as many as will fit, without touching until golden; turn & fry on other side until center is done -- about 3 minutes on each side. Keep warm until all are fried, adding oil to skillet as needed.
