Corn Fritters

This American classic is a savoury treat traditional in the south of America, we have used tinned sweetcorn instead of the more commonly used fresh sweetcorn. You normally deep fry them but we have shallowed fried.


  • 12 ozs 2 Cups Sweetcorn
  • 2 Egg Replacement
  • 1 oz ¼ Cup Plain Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Yellow Cornmeal
  • 2 ½ Tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Soya Milk
  • 1 Tsp Granulated Sugar
  • ½ Tsp Salt


  • Make up egg replacer according to packet instructions and beat in the milk.
  • Mash the sweetcorn into small pieces and place in a bowl. Add the egg replacer and stir well.
  • TIP: We wanted our sweetcorn very finely mashed so blended them in a food processor.
  • In another bowl mix together the plain flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar and baking powder.
  • Add the sweetcorn mixture and beat together until a thick batter has formed. Leave to stand for 15 minutes.
  • Heat enough oil to cover the surface of a heavy large frying pan or skillet. Drop a quarter of the mixture in and shape into a round using a wooden spatula.
  • Cook for at least three minutes on each side and remove when golden brown.
  • Repeat the process until all four are cooked and serve.

Vegan Calling started as a number of scribbled down notes, recipe cards and our adaptations of favourite meals! We originally wanted to create a place for all these recipes to go so we originally thought of a cookbook. However, an online database allows us to not only avoid various stains and spills, we’re also now able to share our recipes with the rest of the web. Non-Vegan friends that come around for meals are always surprised at how delicious our various starters, main meals, desserts and everything in between taste so good! They’re always asking how we make them so wonderful without using animal products – this site lets them and everyone else know how we do it!
