1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
(3) ears of fresh corn, make sure to cut kernels from the cob
(2) large eggs, separated
½ cup heavy whipping cream
To taste: (1) pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper
(1-quart) vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
2 tbsp cane syrup, or as desired
1. Add and whisk flour and baking powder into a bowl and mix in corn kernels. Add and whisk egg yolks with cream in a small bowl and stir into the corn mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Add and beat egg whites with an electric mixer until fluffy and stiff peaks form in a separate bowl. Fold egg whites into the batter gently, leaving as much volume as possible.
2. Add and pour vegetable oil into a deep heavy skillet to a depth of 3 inches. Heat it at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
3. Add fritters, 2 to 3 tbsp at a time into the hot oil. Make sure to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, each side until it turns golden brown. On paper towels, drain fritters and serve with cane syrup drizzled.
