How to Make Sweet Eggplant Fritters
- Mix well all ingredients together, except milk. Add enough milk to make a thick batter. (Should be softer than a drop biscuit dough, but thicker and heavier than a pancake batter.)
- Place about 1/2" of vegetable oil in heavy skillet, heat. When the oil become hot enough, drop batter by tablespoons full into hot oil. Fry until browned, turn and fry other side.
- Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- Note: I have made these on a griddle sprayed with butter flavored cooking spray. I did have to thin the batter a little more than usual, but it worked well enough. It is a great way to take out some of the calories and cholesterol if you are concerned about that.
