1/2 cup cream or half-and-half

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 cups fresh corn kernels (about 12 ears corn)

About 1 cup lard or vegetable oil

  1. Beat the egg yolks until foamy. Add cream, flour, and salt and combine well. Stir in corn.
  2. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold into corn mixture.
