2 ears tender fresh corn
1/3 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs, separated
1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste
Oil for deep-frying

Cut the corn from the cobs and scrape the cobs well to extract the milk.

You should have 1/2 cup corn.

Sift the flour with the baking powder and mix it with the corn and the egg yolks.

Add salt and cayenne pepper.

Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry and grainy.

Fold them into the corn mixture.

Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls into deep, hot, fresh oil, about 375 degrees F.

Cook the fritters until they have browned on one side, about 2 minutes.

Turn, and when both sides are golden brown, remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Serve at once.
