My sister in law is a very busy person as a rule. She works for a non profit organization in her area and is by nature a very generous spirit. Once a year she interrupts her hectic schedule and orchestrates an elaborate block party – community garage sale in order to raise money for her favorite charity. I have been to many of these parties over the years and they are always a great day. Several years ago, however the party took a wonderful turn and would never be the same again. And a Hamilton Beach Deep Fryer played a huge role in that success.
Because her patron turn out was growing year after year, the party was taking on a life of it’s own and requiring the time and energies of more and more volunteers. And this did not go unnoticed by my sister in law. She decided to reward her friends by adding a fun twist to the event. She added a cooking contest that each volunteer could join to win trophies and gift cards. Everyone loved the idea and the participants were anxious to show off their back yard culinary talents.
On the day of the event, 16 booths were erected and the cooking commenced. Patrons were thrilled with the new addition to the event and the money poured into the gift boxes as guests devoured the foods and voted for their favorite backyard chef. It was such a success that it became a permanent part of the party.
I too loved the idea and saw the success the charity event had generated. And I really liked everything I ate. But one booth stood out slightly above the rest. A man had set his booth up with four little fryers and sold bite sized, deep fried goodies that were absolutely to die for.
When I asked him about his recipes and his cookware, he told me that he too worked charity events and had purchased a Hamilton Beach Deep Fryer in order to sell Corn Fritters. It worked so well that he purchased another and over the years has come to use four of them when participating in any event. And Corn Fritters are still the big draw to his booth. After eating them myself, I definitely knew why people flocked after these delicious morsels. It didn’t take me long to add this recipe to my collection and I believe it only took me two days to order my own Hamilton Beach Deep Fryer.

The Famous Charity Corn Fritter
- 1 box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix (evidently this is the ‘secret ‘ ingredient)
- 1/4 cup of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ cup whole milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 can of whole kernel corn, well drained
Set the Hamilton Beach Deep Fryer to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Using a small ice cream scoop carefully drop the corn batter by the scoopful into the hot oil. Cook, turning occasionally, until cooked through and deep-golden brown, about 2 minutes. Move the finished corn fritters to a platter covered with a paper towel. Serve with maple syrup.
