Twin Fritters, Don't Ya Know

My first day off!  And Len has Mondays off!  And Happy Canada Day!

We are up to good in the kitchen together.  She came up with some great ideas for deep fried delights made with maple syrup to celebrate our neighbors to the north.

Banana fritters for her and carrot fritters for me.  We each used different ingredients and turned out a tasty Monday treat.

Banana Fritters

2 ripe bananas
1/2 GF baking mix
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons Pellegrino or sparkling water

Mash bananas in medium bowl with a fork.  Add baking mix and cinnamon until stiff batter forms, adding more baking mix if needed. Add enough Pellegrino just to loosen the batter enough to drop from a spoon into the oil.

Carrot Fritters

1/4 cup puréed canned carrots with 1 tablespoon maple syrup
3/4 cup GF baking mix
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla Soymilk

Mix carrots, baking mix, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in small bowl.  Add just enough Soymilk to loosen the batter enough to drop from a spoon into hot oil.

Heat your oil to 375.  Put 1/4 cup maple syrup into a bowl.

Drop your batters by teaspoons full into hot oil.  Cook until they float and are golden (about 2 minutes after they float).

Remove onto paper towels.  Roll in a bowl with maple syrup, replenishing when necessary while still hot.

The carrot fritters puffed nicely with baking soda and the sparkling water gave the banana ones a nice lift!

Oh Canada!  Thank goodness for your sweetness!
