Strawberry Fritters

This recipe is delicious with any fruit, from a fascinating website that gives 21st century flair to traditional French and British dishes. This is actually a French recipe, and it looks amazing. I could only imagine the taste! Another one on my 'to do' list!

Strawberry (or any seasonal fruit) Fritters

  • 1 lb. all-purpose flour
  • 5-8 oz. of white wine
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. brandy
  • zest of two lemons (approximately 2 tsp.)
  • 2 lb. strawberries
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 lb. of lard or peanut oil
  1. Make a batter with the first four ingredients. Add the lemon zest. The batter is right when it resembles a medium pancake batter and can make a rope or a figure eight in the bowl as it drips from a spoon.
  2. Dunk the strawberries in the batter and then set them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. When the pan is full, put it in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  3. Melt the lard in a frying pan. When the lard has reached 360 degrees on a thermometer, fry the strawberries in the hot fat.
  4. Fry them a nice brown, then dust them with sugar.
  5. Put the sugared strawberries under a broiler for a minute or two to melt the sugar.
