Zucchini Fritters Recipe
Makes 12 fritters
1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1 cup of fat free milk
400g (2 medium size) zucchini, shredded and all the juices squizzed out
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sift the flour and baking soda using a flour sifter into a medium bowl. Break egg in a jar, add the milk and beat them with a whisk until they are mixed well.
Pour egg mixture slowly into flour mixture, whisking as you go; continue whisking until the batter mixture is smooth. I like adding 1 teaspoon of olive oil into the batter that prevent fritters from sticking to the pan.
|Stir the zucchini and sultanas into the batter with a wooden spoon.|
Put a tiny little bit of olive oil (just to coat) on to the frying pan. Turn the stove on to medium and heat the pan.
Using a large spoon form a round picklets out of the batter and spread them on the pan.
Cook the fritters about 1 minute or until browned underneath; turn them over and cook the other side for about 1 minute (make sure it cooked through).
Remove the fritters from the pan, put them on a plate and cover with foil to keep them warm.
Using this simple healthy fritters recipe you will be able to cook lovely afternoon snack or school box fillers.
