Corn Crisps

***Thanks to Pinterest, I'm getting a lot of traffic on this recipe! So, WELCOME! Please take a look around at other recipes, there are some fabulous ones (if I must say so myself)! And please "like" me on FaceBook so you won't miss anything! Thanks again for taking the time to visit and enjoy the food!***

I saw these in "family fun" magazine and had to try. We all LOVE corn and these looked like the best bite-sized side for any meal!

CORN CRISPS


1/2 cup flour
1 tsp kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper [optional]
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
1 T [tablespoon] unsalted butter, melted
1-1/2 cups can or frozen corn, thawed if frozen [I think it could do with MORE corn, so try adding 2 cups]
1/4 cup finely chopped scallions
Canola or vegetable oil


  • In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, cumin, sugar, and cayenne. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter. 
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until they are just blended. Fold in the corn and scallions.
  • Pour oil in large nonstick skillet [until it come up 1/4 inch on the sides] and heat over medium-high heat until the oil is shimmering. 
  • For each crisp, drop a slightly rounded tablespoon of batter into the oil. Fry them in batches over medium-high heat until they are golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. 
  • Transfer the crisps to a paper towel-lined sheet pan, sprinkling them immediately with a bit of salt. [this can be taken out--it was pretty salty with the sprinkled salt on top, in my opinion]
  • Repeat with the remaining batter.

I have been looking for a corn recipe for a few days now ever since my daughter got an old copy of Silly SYmphony's old version of The Wise Little Hen. This is a cartoon featuring Donald Duck but the main story revolved around the Mother Hen and how she taught her chicks to be industrious.They all worked in the field to get a good harvest of corn and shared a wonderful corn banquet afterwards. My 2 year old will be smiling when I serve this for breakfast...Mom, this is just what the Wise little hen and her chicks had. Thanks for this post!

Have you tried this baked? I wonder....

Tracy Dyar said...

These sound so good. I'd add some jalapeño. Yum.

Tania said...

I am going to try this with cornmeal.

I tried your suggestion of 2 cups of corn & someone else's curiosity about baking them, and they turned out great! I sprayed a muffin tin & spooned a small amount of batter into 10 of the 12 cups to yield a thinner 1/2 inch 'muffin'. Baked at 400F for 30 minutes until golden brown. We loved them with a pot of chili. Thanks!

These are great made in a waffle iron too. Spray iron lightly with non-stick spray and just drop a tablespoon or so in the center of the grid (don't fill the whole thing) to keep them bite sized. (I also agree it needs 2 cups of corn.)

I added about a quarter cup chopped cilantro... so good!

Just made these so easy. I put in 2 cups of corn and baked them in my mini muffin tin at 400 for 18 min. Delish

Made these today while it was all icy outside and they really hit the spot. Even my husband enjoyed til he was full. With the left overs he wants us to put cheese on them and warm them in the oven. Can't wait to see how that tastes. :) Thank you for this wonderful recipe..!!

Emily Stacy said...

These are amazing, thank you! I left out the cayenne pepper & scallions to keep them kid friendly and the were SO good. I would definitely do them with the cayenne pepper & the scallions if it was just me and the hubby eating them though. I also did the 2 cups of corn (used frozen, but cooked it first).

Jeri said...

Oh wow! I go to Family Fun's website all of the time for crafts & recipes. Not sure how I missed this one so long ago! No matter! I have it now, thank YOU very much! So...here's what I did.....I did bake....I also {insert gasp here} used 2 cups of canned corn. I didn't use the cumin....just not a fan. And then....I whipped up some honey butter! And Ohmiword....I ham stopping myself from eating the whole darn sheet of them. Thanks for ressurecting this yumminess! You will make my family and friends very happy tonight.

OMG these were good!!

Pamela Lyons said...

my dad would make corn fritters when I was a kud. gonna try these with my kids. thanks

RW said...

It says a T of butter. What does a T mean?

michele said...

T means tablespoon. I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me if I could use an egg substitute. Like applesauce or something else. I'm very allergic to eggs but want to try these so badly!

Tina D'Amato said...

Made these tonight, DELICIOUS!! Definitely a keeper recipe. We're watching our fat calories so I left out the melted butter and pan fried them with Pam spray. OMG delicious! Thanks for sharing :)

studygirl said...

so my brilliant self started making this recipe and I got to the point where you are supposed to fold the corn in. I go to the pantry to get some canned corn and OOPS, No corn to be had anywhere in the house. No idea how that happened as I always have it around. I will have to try this recipe another time!

Little Bear Cakes said...

My mom used to make these all the time when we were little! If you leave out the cumin, cayenne, and scallions they taste FABULOUS with maple syrup. I know, it sounds crazy, but try it...your mind will be blown :)

Ewenique said...

Oh, these sound yummy! Will have to try both frying and baking.

Desiree Simmons said...

These sound fabulous! I'd like to know how many crisps this recipe makes. I am making them for a party and don't know how many batches to make.

Susan Rowan said...

Is the canned corn supposed to be drained?

Weeziefbaby68 said...

Can another type of flour be substituted for gluten free? This looks so good!

Michelle kinsey said...

Made this with dinner tonight. Everyone loved them. I added a little more sugar and a dash of pepper. Didn't have scallions so used onions. I think I'm gonna add a dash of garlic powder when I make them again tomorrow night!
