National Corn Fritters Day
Itâ€™s National Corn Fritters Day! Corn fritters are savory bites of fried or baked corn batterâ€”a mixture made with corn, egg, flour, milk, and melted butter. These treats can be eaten alone, served as a side, or enjoyed with a topping like syrup, powdered sugar, or jam.
Although corn fritters originated in the South, many other cultures have come up with similar dishes. For example, in Asia â€śpakorasâ€ť are a popular snack. This dish is made with vegetables dipped in batter that are then deep-fried.
To celebrate National Corn Fritters Day, head to your local Southern-style restaurant or grab your frying pan to cook up some homemade fritters!
