What are Corn Fritters?
Corn Fritters are a savoury snack. Traditional corn fritters are a mixture of corn kernels, egg, flour, milk, and melted butter. They can be deep fried, shallow fried, or baked and served with jam, fruit, honey, or cream. They may also be made with creamed corn, baked, and served with maple syrup.

The word "fritter":

Fun Food Facts:
"Small cakes made with a primary ingredient, mixed with batter and fried, are found in many American cuisines. "Corn fritters" and "apple fritters" are well known, although the American apple fritter is unlike the British one. Fritters may use regular flour, cornmeal, or a mix. New England clam cakes and Maryland crab cakes are essentially varieties of fritter."
