    Native Connecticut Strawberry Fritters

    This recipe makes about 18 fritters.

    Ingredients:

     

    • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
    • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
    • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
    • ½ tsp. Salt
    • 2 Eggs
    • ¾ Cup Milk
    • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
    • 1 ¼ Cups Diced Strawberries
    • As Needed Canola Oil for frying
    • As Needed Powdered Sugar to coat fritters after frying

     

    Instructions:

     

    • Sift together the first 4 ingredients into large bowl.
    •  In separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Now, pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk gently just to combine. 
    • Cover and let batter chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile hull and dice your strawberries.
    • Remove the batter from the refrigerator and gently stir in the strawberries. To fry the fritters, heat a pot no more than halfway filled with canola oil to 350ºf. Drop the batter into the oil in tablespoons, allowing space between each. Fry in small batches of only 3 fritters at a time for about 2 minutes, turning occasionally until medium golden brown.
    •  Drain briefly and coat with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
