Strawberry Fritter

BreadBakers

#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely bread by following our Pinterest board right here.
Links are also updated after each event on the BreadBakers home page.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. This month Camilla at Culinary Adventures with Camilla has chosen breads from around the world that are traditional for Easter, Passover or Springtime.

Spring means Strawberry Season around here. We have several pick your own farms in the area to take advantage of the bounty. Most strawberry patches mature towards late spring. That gives me plenty of time to experiment with store bought berries.

Fritters are fried batter desserts similar to doughnuts. They also make great breakfast treats. Fritters are popular with my PA Dutch heritage. Usually fritters are made with with seasonal fruit and dipped in glaze like their doughnut cousins. Apple and blueberry are area favorites. I chose strawberries instead for my deep-fried indulgence. A quick drizzle of confectioner’s sugar and water icing is all they need.

The batter should be a bit thicker than pancake batter.

    These look wonderful! I have been eating lots of strawberries lately too. I’ve been hoping to do pick your own berries for a while but it seems much harder to get the timing right than with apples. By the time I get around to it other folks have picked the place clean!
