Southern Corn Fritters

Southern Corn Fritters:

1 1/4 cups self-rising cornmeal
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup milk

2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 (15.25 ounce) can corn, drained
vegetable oil, for frying, I use olive oil

Heat oil to 325 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal mix, flour, sugar, and salt. In a small bowl, combine milk and eggs. Add milk mixture to cornmeal mixture, stirring well. Stir in butter and corn.

Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a Dutch oven, or use a deep-fryer. Drop by tablespoons into hot oil. Cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels.
