Honey Cheese Fritters

Honey Cheese Fritters


9 each - large eggs

3/4 cup - blackberry honey

1 1/2 tsp. - vanilla extract

2 1/4 cup - whole milk ricotta, thoroughly drained

3/4 cup - finely grated parmesan

3 3/4 cup - all-purpose flour

3 T - baking powder

1/3 cup - powdered honey

1/3 cup - powdered sugar

6 T - whipped lemon honey

3 T - lemon zest

1 oz. - finely grated parmesan, microplane recommended


Preheat fryer to 325˚F.

In a small bowl whisk together eggs, honey, vanilla extract, ricotta, and parmesan until smooth.

In a medium bowl - whisk together flour and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Whisk egg mixture into flour mixture and mix until smooth.

Working in batches if needed, scoop fritters into hot oil. Cook for 4-5 minutes until golden brown, turning as needed to prevent over-browning.

While the fritters are cooking, create the fritter dust by whisking the powdered honey and powdered sugar together until smooth.

Once golden brown and cooked through, remove the fritters from oil and allow to drain off slightly before tossing in the fritter dust.

Drizzle with honey and garnish with freshly grated lemon zest and parmesan.
