Oven Baked Corn Fritters

Look, it’s a muffin, it’s a quiche. No it’s a corn fritter!  Lighter version and less doughy.

Normally, you shallow fry corn fritters on a pan which gives a much crispier and greasier result. Yumz!! I personally find it is manageable to shallow fry for two people portions but when you want to cater for a larger group in the morning, it’s best to whip out a muffin pan and bake these little yummers in one go. In addition to not having to stand by the stove pan frying a couple fritters at a time, the smell of baked corn fritters was more tantalising than the smell of hot oil from the pan.

Some corn fritters I have had in the past can be quite doughy i.e. the batter is too thick for my taste. As I prefer a lighter and fluffier version, the flour of choice is a combination of rice flour and cornflour.

As these are oven baked, you lose the golden brown crispy exterior of  pan fried corn fritters. In order to fake the golden brown crispy exterior of oven baked corn fritters, I decided to top them up with  Perfect Italiano Pizza Plus  (a mixture of Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses) which I know will melt and blistered beautifully.

    These would be such a good idea for a picnic! And so much faster to cook too!

    Could I substitute all purpose flour for the rice flour?

    These sound great! I’d like to try them soon. Do you think they would freeze well after baking…and then microwave later to reheat? Thank you!

      Hi Lea,

      I have not tried freezing them but I think it would be okay to freeze them and warm them up in the oven instead of microwave to retain the texture. I am afraid microwaving them may make them soggy.
