Baked cheesy courgette fritters

baked cheesy courgette fritters

I love fritters.

There, I said it. I love everything fried (except for onions).

But I hate frying :\

So I decided to make a batch and try to bake them. I have to admit now that I still prefer them fried but when I think of standing next to a hot hob holding a pan full of hot oil for, what?, 15-20 minutes and all the calories that come with it, I’m well contented with this baked version πŸ™‚


250g grated courgettes
2 eggs, beaten
10 tbsp potato flour or plain flour
100g grated parmesan cheese
salt, pepper and seasoning to taste

Preheat oven to 220Β°C. Mix all the ingredients together and arrange tablespoonfuls of the batter on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.

NOTE: Next time I’ll add a pinch of baking powder to make them a bit fluffier.

  1. I love your recipes. They are simple and easy…I would like to try this one. Should I fry or bake them? do they taste very different (baked/fried?)


    • Thank you so much indeed, Liz! Well, you can do either but for me fried beats baked any day πŸ˜‰ But to eat fritters more regularly it’s best to bake them πŸ™‚


  2. I came back to check on your, (and so many other neglected ), blog(s) just in time…we are being handed courgettes(zucchinis, here), left and right.I must try this recipe!


I'd love hearing from you!
