With just a few store cupboard essentials you can make these really tasty Pea & Sweetcorn Fritters.


  • 100g / 3/4 cup plain or all purpose flour (can be gluten free)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 medium egg
  • 100ml / 1/2 cup milk
  • 200g / 1 and 3/4 cups frozen sweetcorn and peas (or canned is fine too)
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp oil


  1. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the eggs and milk and mix well.
  2. Stir in the peas, sweetcorn and spring onion and mix until well combined.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add in a heaped tablespoon of the fritter batter. Press down gently with a spatula and repeat until the frying pan is full. I was able to cook 4 fritters at a time in my frying pan but it will depend on the size of yours. I made a total of 8 fritters from the batter.
  5. Fry the fritters on a medium heat for approximately 4 – 5 minutes on either side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve immediately with a little creme fraiche or greek yogurt for dipping.


The cooked fritters will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Alternatively, they can be frozen by wrapping them individually in parchment paper and placing in a freezer bag. Defrost them before warming in the oven or microwave.
