How to Make Corn Nuggets

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder until well-combined.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, heavy cream, and shortening. Pour this mixture into the flour mixture and mix together with a rubber spatula. Fold in the drained corn kernels until just combined. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Using a deep fryer or a large pot, heat up the frying oil until it reaches 360°F. Once hot, use a scoop to spoon the corn batter into the oil. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking and fry until the corn nuggets are golden brown.
  4. Transfer the corn fritters to a large plate or baking sheet lined with paper towel to remove excess grease. These corn nuggets are best served warm. ENJOY!
