Fritters – Savoury and Sweet

Frying stuff in batter is always good isn’t it, I even once tried a deep-fried and battered Mars bar – and actually it was nice, though so rich I couldn’t finish the whole thing!! In an attempt to get Syd eating a bit more veg I decided to make some cheesy vegetable fritters – and then because  I have a sweet tooth I also made some raspberry and white chocolate fritters.

Basic Fritter Batter

A basic fritter batter which can be adjusted to be savoury or sweet.
Serves: 8 medium fritters
Ingredients
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 medium egg
  • 150 ml milk
Instructions
  1. Simply beat together all the ingredients until you have a smooth batter.
  2. Allow to rest in the fridge for half an hour if time allows, but this will work if you use it straight away too.
  3. Once you have added whatever other ingredients you are using (see rest of post for suggestions), fry in batches in hot oil until brown on both sides.
 

I used the basic fritter batter above in both my savoury and sweet recipes. To make the cheesy vegetable fritters I added 50g of grated mature cheddar, one small tin of sweetcorn (well-drained) and 100g of cooked mixed veg. Stir all the extras into the batter, season with salt and pepper, then fry until golden on both sides. Serve with salad and chutneys or sauces of choice. (I like mine with sweet chilli sauce or caramelised onion chutney, Syd prefers ketchup obvs!)

To make the raspberry and white chocolate fritters make the basic batter mix above, adding  50g of icing sugar, 100g of halved fresh raspberries and 100g of white chocolate chips. I have to say these aren’t the best presented dessert ever, but the taste more than makes up for the scruffy appearance – the combo of hot, sweet batter, sharp raspberries and oozy white chocolate is just heavenly!

    Ooh I have never thought to try anything like this at all but could be worth a shot with my awkward eaters as they tend to like crispy things.

    These looks amazing. 🙂 I will definitely try them out. My husband is more of a savoury person, while I have more of a sweet tooth so will be making both kinds. 🙂

    Oh yum. Fritters are a great way to introduce new foods. I love the sound of the sweet ones. Yum

    oh yummy! I do love fritters, especially sweetcorn ones dipped into a yoghurt mint sauce. The kids love them too, but strangely I’ve not made sweet ones before, I’ll have to give them a go.

    This is worth a try with my son- it looks like something he’d eat as long as he couldn’t see the veg! Great idea!
