Best Corn Nuggets


2 cups (about 1 can) of whole kernel corn, drained
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
Vegetable oil for frying


Prepare the Batter:
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to combine.
Add Wet Ingredients:
In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg until well beaten.
Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
Pour the milk and egg mixture into the dry ingredient mixture. Stir until the batter is smooth and well combined.
Fold in Corn:
Gently fold in the drained whole kernel corn into the batter.
Heat Oil:
In a deep skillet or frying pan, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350-375°F (175-190°C).
Drop the Batter:
Using a spoon or a small ice cream scoop, carefully drop spoonfuls of the corn batter into the hot oil.
Fry Until Golden:
Fry the corn nuggets for 2-3 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Make sure to flip them once to ensure even cooking.
Drain Excess Oil:
Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried corn nuggets from the hot oil. Place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
Serve the corn nuggets hot. They are great on their own or with dipping sauces like ketchup, ranch dressing, or honey mustard.
