Air-fryer sweetcorn fritters

Prep:15 mins

Cook:12 mins

Serves 10 – 12

Make some sweetcorn and spring onion fritters for lunch, a starter or a side. They’re made with an air-fryer for easy, energy-efficient cooking




175g plain flour

1½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp garlic powder

1 tsp smoked paprika

100ml milk

2 eggs, beaten

½ small bunch of parsley, finely chopped

4 spring onions, finely chopped

500g sweetcorn (see tip below)



Combine the flour, baking powder, garlic powder, paprika and a good pinch each of salt and freshly ground black pepper in a large bowl.

Gradually whisk in the milk and eggs until you have a smooth, thick batter.

Mix in the parsley, spring onions and sweetcorn.

Make 10-12 fritters by taking a spoonful of the mixture (around the size of a golf ball) and flattening down. Put on a tray or plate.

Put a layer of baking parchment in the base of the air-fryer basket.

Heat the air-fryer to 200C and cook the fritters in batches for 12-15 mins, turning after 8 mins until golden and set


If using frozen sweetcorn, you can mix it in from frozen. If using canned, make sure you’ve drained it well, as extra liquid will change the texture.
