Fritter done

My husband suggested the name for this post.  These are super yummy and very fast to whip up.
3 cups oil for frying
1 cup flour, sifted (this takes two seconds so don't discard this recipe because of it- ahem my sister)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter or shortening, melted
1 (12 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained very well

Heat oil in cast iron skillet or other pan until hot. Drop spoonfuls into oil. When they float flip over. Keep flipping until golden brown.  Drain on plate with paper towel to catch oil. If you are not great at frying remember that the second batch will cook quicker. The oil is hotter by this point.
This recipe is great for substituting the corn for apples, bananas, peppers and so on. We really want to try apples and bananas.  I felt that it could have used a tad more sugar but my husband said they were perfect. I sprinkled some powdered sugar on mine.
