I made these when we had people over to watch a football game and they have made me an official fritter lover. And I know fritters are traditionally fried…however these baked ones are amazing and you won’t even miss the friedness. (not a word, I know) The key is in the broil of the glaze after they are baked. Key! But make sure you watch them close otherwise you end up with burnt fritters.
Another tip is that these are best when first made. I made the mistake of making these the night before and they ended up more moist (ew) and less hard glaze. Fresh out of the oven, they get that hard glaze like on a fried fritter and that, in my opinion, is the best part. Also the yummy pumpkin flavor that gives all the fall vibes.
You gotta try this one! Follow me over on Facebook and Instagram @lolohomekitchen. Be sure to snap a pic if you make a Lolo’s recipe and tag it with #lolohk. I love to see what you are making!
