Corn Fritters

Do you have extra corn this season you don't know what to do with? I made these last night and everyone at girls' night seemed to enjoy them. I also doubled the recipe and it worked out just fine.

3 ears corn, husks and silk removed
1/3 cup milk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ cup cornmeal
¼ cup flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Sour cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Remove kernels: Cut off tip of each cob; stand in a wide shallow bowl. With a sharp knife, slice downward to remove kernels. To bowl, add milk, egg, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pepper; mix. Fold in cornmeal and flour.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with paper towel. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium. Drop batter into pan by heaping tablespoons. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt; place in oven. Repeat. Keep warm in oven up to 30 minutes. Serve with sour cream, if desired.
