Yum! I guess they updated the recipe since the other comments, so I tried it. It was tasty, but we thought it tasted more like a fluffy southwestern hush puppy than corn fritters. I'd add a little more corn...and maybe next time even a touch of sugar since I prefer a sweeter corn dish, but this was a fantastic base! Word of warning though, these things soak up oil pretty crazy, so either cook it for a shorter amount of time or make sure to drain well.
