Remember when I told you that I attend a cooking club? Well I haven’t been for sometime because of summer and things just being really busy. My friend had been in Germany and so we did the club at her house after she returned.She wanted to make these blueberry fritters and I was so happy she did because I thought they were just amazing! The blueberry flavor popped with each bite because you use 1 and 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries.
This recipe is from King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion Cookbook. When we made these for the cooking club the batter just seemed off. It was so thick even though the recipe says it would be. We could barely stir in the blueberries. I went home and made these the next day because I had to understand why? Well in this recipe you have to beat egg whites. The key is you only beat them to medium peaks not the normal stiff peaks that you see in a lot of recipes. This was a small detail that we kind of over looked when we made them at the cooking club. But let me tell you it makes a huge difference in the consistency of the batter. The pictures here do not do this dessert justice but trust me you want to make these! ENJOY!
