Great-Grandma’s Old-Fashioned Corn Fritters

Old-fashioned corn fritters straight from Great-Grandma's kitchen. Simple, no frills... Easy and delicious!

My great-grandparents were incredible people. Glen and Mabel Hornbaker owned and ran a bakery together in Michigan for 30+ years. Great-Grandma was an amazing baker and cook; Great-Grandpa was a talented artist. When Mabel got Alzheimer’s, Glen refused to put her into a facility and instead acted as her primary caregiver at home. They were soul mates.

I don’t remember much about my great-grandparents since they passed away when I was so young, but I love to hear stories about them. I like to think that I got my creativity and love of the kitchen from them both.

These old-fashioned corn fritters are straight from Great-Grandma’s kitchen. This simple, no-frills side embraces Depression-era frugality without sacrificing on flavor. You can make them with leftover corn on the cob (grilled or boiled!) or with corn kernels from the freezer. Easy and delicious.
