This is a huge family favorite. My mom used to make these for my siblings and I when we returned home from school as an after school snack. We also had them for breakfat, or served as a side to smothered potatoes. Heck, they are so good, you just want to eat them any old time. I made them for my kids and they loved them as much as I did growing up. It sure puts a smile on my hubby's face too when I make these. I think it is his favorite eggplant dish!

How to Make Sweet Eggplant Fritters

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix 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.)
  • 2Place 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.
  • 3Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • 4Note: 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.
