Today is National Fritters Day! Fritters are delicious fried
cakes filled with fruit or meat. They can be served as a snack, side
dish, dessert, or even the main course!
There's actually not much difference between pancake and fritter
batter. They are both made with the same ingredients. It is only once
fruit or meat is dipped into the raw batter and then fried that it
actually becomes a fritter.
The first historical record of the fritter dates back to 1665. Samuel
Pepys, an Englishman who served as a Member of Parliament during the
English Restoration period, noted in his diary that he would be enjoying
some fritters before Lent!
To celebrate National Fritter Day, try making your own tasty fritters to enjoy!
