Crispy on the outside and packed with juicy blueberries on the inside, these sweet little Blueberry Fritters are what summer breakfast dreams are made of.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • canola oil for frying
  • confectioner's sugar for dusting
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until well blended.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, egg, butter and vanilla. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring with a spatula just until combined. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  3. Heat about 3-4 inches of canola oil in a Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Do not heat the oil too quickly or above medium heat or the fritters will burn.
  4. Drop batter by the tablespoonful into the hot oil. I usually put in 5 at a time. Do not leave the pot while the fritters are cooking. Flip occasionally to promote even browning. Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes until fritters are cooked through.
  5. Remove from pot with slotted spoon and let drain on a paper towel lined plate. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm.
