Fritters are small, sweet or savory cakes or balls that are dipped in a batter, deep fried until golden brown and heated through, and then served hot. Alternately, the ingredients can be mixed into a thick batter that is scooped up and dropped by spoonfuls into hot oil to cook. They can also be cooked on a hot griddle instead of deep-fried in oil.
Savory fritters, like crab or corn, are typically served as an appetizer or accompaniment to a meal. Depending on the ingredients, they may be served with a sauce or gravy.
Sweet fritters, like apple or banana, are eaten as a dessert or breakfast item and are often dusted with or rolled in powdered sugar before serving. They can also be served with a sauce, or drizzled with a sugar glaze.
Meats, fish or seafood, vegetables and fruits are all commonly found in fritter recipes.
