BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Fresh From Florida shows you how to make a tasty dessert dish of Florida strawberry fritters.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Florida strawberries, diced
  • 1 cup Florida orange juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of cardamom
  • Pinch of white pepper
  • ½ cup sugar (for coating)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon (for coating)
  • 2 quarts (or more) oil, for frying

PREPARATION

  • In a medium bowl toss sugar and cinnamon together and set aside.
  • To prepare the batter, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and white pepper in a large bowl.
  • Add the diced strawberries to the flour mixture and toss to combine. In a separate bowl whisk together the orange juice, eggs, and melted butter. Add dry ingredients (in 2 stages) to wet ingredients until fully combined. Set batter aside to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add at least 2 inches oil to cast iron pan or Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat until 350 degrees. Using an ice cream scoop (or other high heat safe spoon) drop mounds of batter into hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd pan.
  • Allow to fry at least 6-8 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until golden brown. Transfer fritters to paper-towel lined baking sheet to drain any excess oil. Immediately toss in cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat. Serve warm.

Fresh tip: Seasonal fruit (Florida blueberries or mangoes) can be substituted if desired.
