For the Creamy Dipping Sauce (Optional):

  • 1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of paprika or cayenne pepper for a bit of spice (optional)


  1. Prepare the Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the fresh or canned corn kernels, sliced green onions, eggs, and milk. Stir well.
    • In a separate bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, and kosher salt.
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the corn mixture, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  2. Fry the Fritters:
    • Heat a generous amount of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, spoon dollops of the batter into the pan, flattening them slightly to form patties.
    • Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until the fritters are golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  3. Prepare the Creamy Dipping Sauce:
    • While the fritters are frying, mix together the sour cream (or Greek yogurt), mayonnaise, lemon juice (or vinegar), garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper. Add a pinch of paprika or cayenne pepper if you like it spicy.
    • Stir until smooth and well combined. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  4. Serve:
    • Serve the corn fritters hot, accompanied by the creamy dipping sauce on the side.
