Fritters and Fritter Batter

Now here's an old-fashioned recipe that you don't hear too much about today but they are oh so good.  Sure they are fried in oil and sure they could be high in cholesterol because of the oil.  Let's get our thinking caps out here and if you read labels I'm sure you can find a safer oil to use such as Canola Oil.

Batter Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablesppons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar (for sweet fritters only)

Mix and sift dry ingredients.  combine milk and egg until well beaten and add to dry ingredients, beating constantly.  The batter should be thick enough to entirely coat the food.  If too thick add more milk; if too thin add more flour.
