Corn Fritters

What you need: 

Fritters:
1 egg replacer (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
hot sauce, to taste (I use Tabasco)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 (14 ounce) can corn, drained
1 medium onion, diced 1/4"
1 celery stalk, diced 1/4"
1/2 green or red bell pepper, diced 1/4"
oil, as needed for frying Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/4 cup mustard (spicy or regular)
1/4 cup ketchup or tomato paste
1/2 packet sugar substitute

What you do: 

1. Mix the egg replacer, flour, and baking powder and seasonings with sufficient water to form a fairly firm batter.
2. Combine all fritter ingredients, and allow to rest for 15 minutes prior to deep frying. Heat oil.
3. When oil is ready, drop batter in oil by the tablespoon, do not overcrowd pot. Flip the fritters on both sides until golden brown and done in the middle.
4. For sauce, combine all ingredients well (should look something like thousand island dressing in color). Serve fritters hot with dipping sauce.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

You want them to be in oil at least half as deep as they're thickness, but no, you don't need to "deep fry" them.

Is it imperative that these are deep fried?  I don't have a deep fryer but my man and I have a hankering for these corny beauties.

Yayyy!!! Finally.....a 'dairy-free' Corn Fritter recipe.  :)>>> 

I omitted the egg replacer, increased flour to 2 cups and baking powder to 1 Tablespoon.
I also added 2 cloves of garlic, 2 teaspoons of dried thyme, 1 teaspoon of basil, 1 teaspoon of oregano and 2 tablespoons of organic tomato paste.  The hot sauce was replaced with ground cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes.
I dropped them with a teaspoon and frequently stirred them, once they rose to the top of the oil (ensures even browning). 
These fritters transported me back to my childhood. btw...... My neighbours enjoyed them as much as I did.

N.B. The batter yields a lot of fritters.  Extra batter can be stored in the freezer. Just defrost in the refrigerator, bring to room temperature and add extra baking powder, if necessary. 1 teaspoon of baking powder should be sufficient.
