My grandmother made these crispy, fruity treats with apples, and my mother with sweet corn. When I didn't have either on hand, I substituted bananas and strawberries. Serve dusted with confectioners' sugar.

Instructions Checklist

  • Whisk eggs and confectioners' sugar together in a large bowl. Add milk, 1 teaspoon oil, and vanilla extract; mix well to combine. Add flour mixture; stir until just combined. Gently fold bananas and strawberries into batter.

  • Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Scoop 1/4 cup batter at a time into the oil and fry fritters, in batches, until light golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

Cook's Note:

For a healthier alternative, pan-fry fritters without oil in a nonstick skillet.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

Fantastic! I used gluten free all-purpose flour instead of wheat flour. I also chose the "healthy alternative" in the notes and made them in a non-stick skillet. This made them look a bit more like a pancake but they were light airy and crispy nonetheless. Definitely a treat for your next brunch. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
