I know…I know…this blog has been a bit of blueberry overkill lately. But these fritters were too delicious to not share the recipe. Also, they’d be great for a quick, last minute breakfast on the Fourth of July. With the blueberries and powdered sugar, you’ve got the blue and white covered.
- 1 c. flour
- 1 1/2 t. baking powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 2 T. sugar
- 1/3 c. milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 t. vanilla
- 1 – 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen (If using frozen, do not thaw first.)
- Oil for frying
1. Combine the flour, baking pwder, salt and sugar in a bowl. In a separate bowl or cup, whisk together the milk, eggs and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture and stir until a smooth dough is formed. Fold in blueberries. (It’s okay if some break or mash while stirring.)
2. Heat about an inch of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop dough by tablespoons into oil and cook for about 3 minutes per side, until lightly browned. (Watch them carefully so that the insides cook before the outside burns.) Drain on paper towels and roll in powdered sugar when cooled.
I just love the pretty blue color the insides turn.
