Blueberry Fritters is another way to have luscious deep donuts filled with blueberries, cinnamon and drizzled with an easy glaze. You can have these scrumptious treats in your hands in thirty minutes. Make sure to make extra because your family will devour them.
One of my favorite go to recipes for blueberry fritters:
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
½ Cup White Sugar
2¼ Tsp Baking Powder
1¼ Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cinnamon
2 Large Eggs
¾ Cup Whole Milk
1 Tsp Vanilla
3 Tbsp Butter, Melted and Cooled Slightly
1½ – 2 Cups Fresh Blueberries
2 Cups Confectioners/Icing Sugar
1½ Tsp Light Corn Syrup (or Golden Syrup)
¼ Tsp Salt
¼ Tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp White Sugar
1/3 Cup Water
Vegetable Oil for Deep Frying (or Similar Oil)
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla and melted/slightly cooled butter. Whisk to combine.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients. Stir just until combined.
Now add the blueberries and fold in.
Get a cooling rack and set over a non-stick baking mat.
Using a deep fryer or heavy, deep pot, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 375° F. Tip: If you don’t have a thermometer, test the oil heat by dropping a bit of batter in. It should float, sizzle immediately, and turn golden within a minute or so.
Drop fritters by the spoonful in to the hot oil. Cook until the underside is deep golden brown. Flip over and cook the other side.
