About this gluten free corn fritter recipe

Corn fritters are a popular brunch option in many cafes. They are delicious topped with smoked salmon or bacon and served with a little avocado on the side – or topped with guacamole.

I have slightly adapted the recipe from Lorna Jane Clarkson’s book, Nourish To make them gluten-free use a mixture of rice flour and coconut flour. Both are widely available from most mainstream supermarkets. I used coconut flour in this recipe instead of chick pea flour because that’s what I had on hand. While I divided most of the ingredients by half, I added an extra egg. Love eggs.

You could also serve these with smoked salmon or poached egg!

Dairy-free cheese options

I admit I couldn’t resist and sprinkled them with some grated manchego. But you could skip that step or grate some dairy-free vegan cheese or a couple of macadamias over the top instead.

Nifty, huh?

Other tip for making the perfect gluten free corn fritters

My only tip here would be to use a larger than you might think necessary fry pan. Otherwise flipping these slightly delicate things will be as easy as giving a labrador a bath in a tea cup.

And the result?

Well, they are an absolute breeze to make and a delight to eat.

Seeing how easy they are to make, I wondered, why I haven’t made corn fritters before. Perhaps I was waiting for the right recipe book to get me inspired. Well done Ms Clarkson. I like it a lot!

Gluten and Dairy-free Corn Fritters

Adapted from Lorna Jane Clarkson’s Nourish. I used coconut flour in this recipe instead of chick pea flour because that’s what I had on hand. While I divided most of the ingredients by half, I added an extra egg. Love eggs. Instead of salsa, I served mine with a few “rescued” avocado wedges and shaved Manchego cheese. For a completely dairy-free version skip the Manchego in favour of grated macadamias.You could also serve these with smoked salmon or poached egg! My only other tip here would be to use a larger than you might think necessary fry pan. Otherwise flipping these slightly delicate things will be as easy as giving a labrador a bath in a tea cup.

Ingredients

For the Corn Fritters:

  • 1/8 cup coconut flour
  • 1/8 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin seeds
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ear corn kernels only
  • 1/4 red capsicum diced
  • 1 sprig spring onions disced finley, green
  • coconut oil for frying

To serve:

  • 1/2 avocado cut into wedges
  • 1 branch truss tomatoes cooked under the grill for 5 minutes
  • a few coriander leaves
  • grated cheese or macadamia nuts

Instructions

  • Sift flours and spices into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl or jug whisk together water and eggs until well combined.
  • Pour egg mixture into the flour bowl and mix well to combine. Add corn, chopped capsicum and spring onions. Mix well.
  • Heat about 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Using a 1/4 cup spring-loaded ice cream scoop or spoon, ladle the batter into the hot oil, flattening out into rounds. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Flip carefully and cook for another 2 or so minutes, or until browned.
  • Serve hot (or cold) with roasted tomatoes, avocado wedges, coriander leaves and a little grated cheese or macadamia nuts.
  • Store leftover fritters in an air-tight container in the fridge for upto 2 days.

Oh how wonderful. I’ve never been to a social media meet up, I’m too scared I think. But it sounds like you had a delightful time. And oh my would you look at that breakfast. LJ is a fantastic role model to Aussie women. Love the look of these and the sound of her book.

Thank you so much for sharing Martyna! Wasn’t it a fun night?! It was so lovely to meet you last night and put a face to the beautiful recipes that pop up in my inbox and provide me with so much inspiration for wholesome cooking. I really enjoyed our chat – it was so refreshing to be able to talk about my restricted diet in a positive way rather than all the negative spin that others like to put on it (like “being gluten free to be trendy”! topic we discussed)
I apologise profusely for this being my first comment – I will be sure to pop a note in each time you’ve inspired a creation in my kitchen!!
Looking forward to meeting up again soon.
Take care,
Angela

Our family loves fritters and little sprinkle of manchego cheese is perfect crumbled on top. I am delighted to learn more about Lorna Jane Clarkson’s new cook book. I have never been to a social meet up group but it sound like loads of fun. However, hosting it at a William’s Sonoma store but be a little dangerous as I love that store. Take care, BAM
