Surprise Fritters
("surprise" because we like to make different flavors all at once!)

Vegetable oil, for frying

1 cup all-in-one pancake mix

1/2 cup water

Salt Pepper plus ingredients below.   
To make Green Onion Fritters add:
7 to 8 scallions, cleaned, dried and trimmed of roots, chopped
Pinch cayenne pepper 

To make Corn Fritters:
1/2 cup of cooked corn, drained. 

To make Fruit Fritters:

1/2 cup of fruit, cut into bite size pieces and excess water removed.


Preheat a large griddle pan or 14-inch skillet over high heat.

Fill a medium saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of vegetable oil and heat to medium-high heat.

Arrange a paper towel lined plate on the counter to place the fritters on when they come out of the hot oil.

In a bowl, make the batter by combining the all-in-one pancake mix with the water (the batter will be on the thick side).

Add your choice of ingredients above and season.

When the oil is ready for frying, drop spoonfuls of the batter into the oil and fry on all sides until golden brown and puffy.

This should take no more than 3 to 4 minutes.

Remove and drain on the paper towel lined plate.

Season with salt while they are still hot.
