Mixed Berry Fritters

Serves 4-6
Time 20 minutes


2 cups self-raising flour

½ cup brown sugar

2 tsp baking powder

pinch cinnamon

2 eggs

¾ cup milk, room temperature

1 tsp vanilla bean paste 

¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

1 punnet blueberries

1 punnet raspberries

½ punnet strawberries, chopped 


½ cup vegetable oil, for frying


Vanilla Glaze

1 cup icing sugar

½ tsp vanilla bean paste

¼ cup water


To serve

Icing sugar

1 sprig mint


In a large bowl mix together the self-raising flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, eggs, milk, vanilla and butter until it comes together as a smooth batter. 

Gently fold in the berries, and avoid breaking them up too much. 

Heat oil in a large frypan, drop a small amount of batter into the oil to check it is hot enough to fry. Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the batter is cooked and the fritters are golden brown. 

While the fritters are frying, make the glaze by whisking together icing sugar, vanilla and water until smooth. 

Transfer the fritters to a wire rack to drain.   

Drizzle over spoonfuls of the vanilla glaze, dust with icing sugar and garnish with a sprig of mint.
