Ingredients

FRITTERS

  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ¾ cup (184g) whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • Vegetable or canola oil, for frying

GLAZE

  • 1 ¼ cups (156g) confectioners' sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3-6 teaspoons water, or until you reach desired consistency (I prefer it on the thinner side)

Instructions

BLUEBERRY FRITTER

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, and melted butter.
  • Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until combined.
  • Fold in the blueberries.
  • Fill a frying pan halfway with oil. Heat over medium heat until the oil reaches 375°F with a candy thermometer.
  • Slowly drop ¼ cup of batter into the oil and let fry until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes per side depending on the heat of your oil.
  • Flip and fry until the opposite side is golden brown. To test for doneness, insert a small knife (or toothpick) into the center. If there's still uncooked batter in the center, fry for a bit longer. Transfer to a paper towel-lined cooling rack and let cool. Repeat with the remaining batter being sure to check the temperature of the oil throughout the process.

GLAZE

  • Make the glaze by combining the sugar, vanilla, and 3 teaspoons of water. Add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until a pourable consistency is reached.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the cooled fritters and let dry.
