According the Professional Cooking For Canadian Chefs, the term 'Fritter' is used for small vegetables or cuts mixed with a batter and dropped with a scoop into hot fat. The term Fritter is also applied to vegetables dipped in batter and fried.
I also remember as a child having corn fritters and they were cooked on the griddle with little fat, much like pancakes and looked liked thick pancakes. They were so delicious then that it has become a family recipe.

4. Stir the cold, cooked vegetables into the batter.
