  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh strawberries hulled and coarsely chopped {drain on paper towels to elminate excess moisture}
  • 1/4 cup strawberry preserves - seedless
  • Oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar optional


  • Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together the milk, egg yolks, oil, lemon juice and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and beat until nice and smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter. The batter will gain quite a bit of volume at this point.
  • Coarsely chop the strawberries. You want nice big chunks in the fritters. Fold the strawberries gently into the batter.
  • Stir up the strawberry preserves so they are nice and loose. Swirl the preserves in the batter.
  • Heat oil to 375 degrees in a deep, heavy saucepan. Drop a couple tablespoons of batter into the hot oil and fry for 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. I used an ice cream scoop for mine. You want the fritters to have enough time to cook all the way through without burning the outside
  • Fry up a test fritter and make adjustments to size and temp as needed.
  • Remove the fritters from the hot oil and drain on paper towels. You can keep the fritters warm in the oven – just set on a low temperature. Serve hot!
  • Top with powdered sugar or a light glaze for yummy perfection!
