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 🙂
BAKED CHEESY COURGETTE FRITTERS
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 220°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.
