Father's Day...what to do? How about start the day with Blueberry Fritters?
They really are quite easy and that is coming from someone who doesn't really like to fry anything! But these I will do...and quite often really 'cause the entire family loves them!
2 eggs beaten
1/3 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup self-rising flour
12 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon melted butter
1 ¾ cups blueberries
4 cups oil for frying
½ cup Granulated sugar for rolling the fritters
In a medium bowl whisk together the milk, eggs and vanilla.
Add the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt.
Whisk until incorporated and then fold in the blueberries and melted butter.
Heat 2 inches of oil in an 8 inch frying pan (or use deep fryer) over medium high until it reaches 375
Using a small cookie scoop drop fritter batter into hot oil and deep fry for 3-4 minutes turning once until browned and cooked through
Drain the fritters on paper towels
Roll in granulated sugar and serve.
Sometimes I change them up a bit by using 1 tablespoon lemon zest instead of cinnamon and switching the vanilla for lemon extract...the lemon goes great with the blueberries BUT the way I gave you the recipe just happens to by my husband's favorite. So, since it's Father's Day tomorrow he will get his favorite version!
