Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. Stir in eggs and milk just until flour mixture has all been moistened. Mixture should be lumpy. Fold in corn. Melt 1 teaspoon shortening in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop corn batter by tablespoonfuls into skillet and fry until brown on both sides and centers feel firm when gently pressed, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to platter and keep warm. Repeat until all batter has been used, adding shortening as needed. Serve with honey or syrup, if desired.
