In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg with a little water. Sift in flour and baking powder, add salt and pepper and stir - adding water if needed - to achieve a medium batter. Make sure the mixture is not too thin. Add the can of cream corn, season and stir.
Heat half the oil in a frypan to a medium heat and add spoonfuls of the batter in the pan. Flip the fritters when they start to bubble on the top - 1-2 minutes but test they are cooked through before removing them. You may need to add a little more oil after each lot is taken out of the pan as they absorb it quite well.
Great basic recipe, although I just reduced flour down to 3/4 cup rather than add milk as other reviewers have suggested, and consistency was great. Also added some chopped coriander, which worked well. - 05 Feb 2012
