Remove husks and silk from corn. With a sharp knife, slice the kernels off each cob into a bowl, you should have about 2 cups kernels.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cornmeal, salt and baking powder. Make a ‘well’ in the center of the flour mixture. Crack the egg and pour the milk into the well. Briefly whisk with a fork and then whisk into the flour until just combined. With a spatula, fold in corn kernels.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-low with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add tablespoon butter. When the oil is hot, spoon batter into skillet to make 2-inch fritters. Cook 3 minutes until the sides of each fritter is beginning to cook, then flip and cook another 3 minutes. Add tablespoon butter.
Remove to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Add more oil if necessary before making more batches.
