Highly addictive, Glazed Strawberry Fritters are crispy on the outside while being soft, fluffy, and loaded with strawberries on the inside. This recipe is super easy, one bowl, and has no yeast!

 Glazed Strawberry Fritters

WHAT IS A ‘FRITTER’?

A fritter is a dough that has meat, seafood, fruit, or vegetables in it that is then fried. Fritters are prepared in both sweet and savory varieties.

Fritter derives from the Late Latin frictura, meaning “a fry.”

GLAZED STRAWBERRY FRITTERS

Today I’m sharing a recipe for Strawberry Fritters. It’s a simple batter, much like muffin batter, full of chopped fresh strawberries in it.

As you can see with just 1/4 cup of sugar in them this fritter recipe is not overly sweet. I considered not glazing them but they really need a sweet glaze. You can put a little or a lot of glaze on them depending on how sweet you want them.

TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL FRITTERS

Dice your strawberries first and let them sit on paper towels for 15 to 20 minutes. The paper towels will soak up excess moisture which will make your fritters soggy.

I like to make the glaze while the strawberries are draining. Unless you have help, things go pretty quickly once you start frying.

There’s a lot of baking powder in this recipe relative to the flour but it needs it for the dough to be light and fluffy. Two teaspoons is not a type.

Once I start frying the Strawberry Fritters, I cook all of the dough before I glaze them. I used a 10-inch skillet and cooked 5 or 6 fritters at a time. Don’t crowd the pan.

After frying place them on a paper towel-lined tray in a single layer.

Once you’ve finished cooking all of the dough, dunk the fritters into the glaze and place on a wire rack to drain and dry.

They ready to serve as soon as you glaze them. I enjoy them best while they’re still warm.

  1. These are so delicious! I glazed half of these with chocolate glaze…I love chocolate covered strawberries!

    1. The batter is the consistency of muffin mix so I don’t think that would work unless you put it in little cups.

    1. I did the same for a long time because I don’t fry much and I thought they’d be difficult. They weren’t. Now, I’m made everything fritter (peach, blueberry… my boys love them)

  2. Could these be baked using a muffin tin lined with muffin cups? They look so good and I’m going for sure to give them a try, but just wondering about baking them.

    1. Yes, you can bake them. The batter is thin so I would only fill the tin half way. This way they will back through without browning on the outside too much.

  3. I am going to try this with blueberries..My husband is allergic to strawberries 🙁 These look so good!!
