Made with wholemeal spelt flour, these fritters are slightly more dense than your average sweetcorn fritter but just as delicious. Swerve immediately nice and hot with a sprinkle of salt and either Sriracha mayo or mari-rose/cocktail sauce. Feel free to add some finely chopped onions or herbs, or leave out the Jalapeños for less of a kick.
