  • 2 x corn on the cob
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • 3 tsps white sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp mixed herbs
  • 250g plain flour
  • 16 sprays Fry Light oil


  1. With a sharp knife remove kernels from the corn: trim one end to produce a flat surface, stand the corn vertically on the flat end and cut down the length of the cob at the base of the kernels.
  2. Turn the cob and repeat until all kernels have been stripped, cutting a few rows at a time.
  3. Separate the eggs.
  4. Peel and chop the onion.
  5.  In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a whisk or mixer until the whites form stiff peaks when lifted with the whisk.
  6. Combine the egg yolks, onion, sugar, salt, pepper, corn, herbs and flour in a large bowl and mix.
  7. Gently fold in the egg whites to the corn mixture, so that no air is lost from the whites, until just combined.
  8. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and spray with a couple of squirts of spray oil; place large tablespoon-sized heaps of batter into the pan and fry until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side.
  9. Remove to a plate and continue with the remaining batter.
