In a large fry pan, melt the butter and oil and add in the corn and onion and sauté for 5 minutes or until a light golden brown. Remove from pan and cool for 5 minutes.

In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients thoroughly.  Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the wet mixture and stir till just incorporated. Add in the cheddar, corn and onions.

Reheat the pan and add in some oil and butter. Drop one tablespoon of the batter at a time into the fry pan and fry till golden brown on one side (2 minutes). Flip over and press down slightly to create a flat surface. Cook for about 2 more minutes till done. Place fritters on a serving platter and keep warm till all complete. Makes about 50.
