These Glazed Strawberry Fritters have a crunchy, crispy outside covered in glaze with lots of chunks of fresh strawberry. They are hands down one of the most delicious ways to eat fresh strawberries.
The batter has some sweetness but most of the sweetness comes from the super sweet powdered sugar glaze and you can put a little or a lot of glaze on the fritters depending on how sweet you want them to be. 🙂
A large amount of baking powder in the batter makes these fritters fry up super light.
Dice the strawberries and let them sit on paper towels for a good 15-20 minutes to soak up excess moisture. No one wants soggy fritters. 🙂
You also want to make the glaze nice and thick so that it won’t make the fritters soggy.
Strawberry Fritters are best eaten as soon after frying as possible. Preferably while they are still warm.
Glazed Strawberry Fritters make a wonderful Spring/Summer breakfast or dessert.
