Recently I came across the cookbook Cook It Together by Annabel Karmel. There are a lot of great recipes in there for adults to make with children and they are great tasting too! The cookbook has great pictures, which I love as I always want to know what the end product "should" look like. As well the directions are done easily for children to follow on their own with little assistance! The one that caught my eye especially is the Corn Fritters! I made these for our home and it is a new fave of mine and so easy to make!
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder pinch of salt
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp milk
1 1/4 cup corn, drained
2 scallions, chopped
1-2 tbsp sunflower oil
Sift the flour, baking powder and pinch of salt into a large bowl. Next separate the egg white from the egg yolk and place them into different bowls once done. Add maple syrup and milk to the egg yolk and whisk together. Pour this mixture over the flour. Stir everything together to make a batter.
Whisk the egg white until it forms soft peaks. Be careful not to over-whisk or it will go flat. Use a spatula to fold the egg white into the flour mixture, ensuring to stir the side of the bowl and across the middle. Poor the corn and chopped scallions into the batter mixture. Fold them in and be as light as possible.
Heat the oil and drop tablespoons of the batter and cook for 1-2 minutes per side. You want to ensure the underside is golden before you flip to cook the other side!
