Hints, Tips, and Tricks

  • Use fritter as a side for any meal, as a breakfast, or as a desert /snack.
  • You can use any pancake mix batter, in place of ‘from scratch’.                  We use Jiffy baking mix, it does not contain Aluminum, and is less saltier.
  • Try Pineapple rings ❤

You can make pancake style fritters with any fruit, leftover veggies, potatoes or onions. Just mix into batter and pour, use less oil and cook like pancakes until done.
