Expert Tips

You can use fresh corn or cooked corn, as well as frozen or canned.

Remember to wear gloves while handling the fresh jalapeño pepper.

Directions

  • 1 In a medium bowl, combine all-purpose flour, tortilla flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and black ground pepper.
  • 2 Blend corn kernels, milk, eggs, melted butter and lemon juice for 1 minute or until everything is well combined. Add corn mixture to flour mixture and stir to combine everything. Add avocado, cilantro, onions and jalapeño. The dough for the corn cakes should be thick.
  • 3 Heat up the oil in a large frying pan on low heat. Pour 1/3 of the dough to create 4-inch mini fritters. Fry 3 mini fritters at a time until they are completely cooked on both sides. Repeat the process with the remaining dough, add more oil if necessary.
  • 4 To serve the mini fritters, top them with a dollop of sour cream and chopped cilantro.
  • 5 Enjoy!

These colorful mini corn fritters made with avocado, cilantro and a touch of lemon are not only pleasing to the palate but they are also very pretty to look at. They are soft and fluffy like hotcakes but with a lot more flavor. To prepare them, I used fresh seasonal corn. Serve them with a little pico de gallo or sour cream for a light lunch. Or you can serve them with a nice bowl of soup or chili at dinnertime.
