Glazed Fresh Strawberry Fritters (hercupofjoy)

Fritters

2 c flour
1/2 c sugar
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
2 large eggs
3/4 c milk
2 t vanilla
3 T butter, melted
1 c fresh strawberries, chopped
oil for frying

Combine all of the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk the eggs until pale in color, about 1 min. Then add in all of the liquid ingredients, vanilla, milk and melted butter. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently mix together. You do not want to over mix the batter, if there are small lumps in the batter that is good. Add in the strawberries and gently fold them into the batter. Heat oil in a deep fryer, or in a large deep pot to 375 F. Drop in spoonfuls of batter into the oil, the smaller the better and the less likely they will be undercooked inside. Once the bottoms are a golden color, carefully flip the fritters over and fry until both sides are a golden brown color. Set them on a paper towel to absorb extra oil. Dip each fritter in the glaze and set on a rack or dish for the glaze to harden. They can also be stored in the counter-top for a few days, treat them just like any other doughnut. Note: The strawberry fritters are best eaten the same day, if they even last that long.

Glaze

3 c powdered sugar
5 T milk

Mix together ingredients. Add 3 T milk at first, then keep adding milk 1 T at a time until the glaze is slightly stiff and a little runny, you do not want the glaze to be too runny or the fritters will be soggy, not crispy.
