Looking for a way to use up your fresh, summer peaches? Try making Peach Fritters, a sweet fried dough that is a delicious treat for your friends and family. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted, or vegetable oil)
  • 1-1/4 cups peaches (diced)
  • Garnish: granulated sugar
  • 1 bottle of oil for fryer or deep frying pan

Steps to Make It

  1. With a wire whisk, combine flour, salt and baking powder.

  2. Whisk in eggs, milk and butter.

  3. Fold in peaches.

  4. Heat oil in fryer or pan to 375 degrees F.

  5. With a long-handled ladle, ladle about 1/4 -1/2 cup batter into hot oil. The batter will sink at first and then rise. Cook for about 2 - 3 minutes, depending on the size of fritters.

  6. Remove fritters from oil with long-handled tongs. Quickly drain on paper towels or newspaper.

  7. One by one, place each fritter in ​a bowl of sugar. Coat both sides. Place on serving plate. Serve warm.
