Cook time:
Total time:
Servings: 16 fritters

What you need


4 cups (1 L) canola oil
3/4 cup (175 mL) + 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter, melted
2 tbsp (30 mL) icing sugar

How to prepare


Pour oil into a saucepan set over medium heat. Attach a candy thermometer to side of pan (ensure it does not touch the bottom). Heat until oil reaches 375ºF (190ºC). 

Stir together 3/4 cup (175 mL) flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk in milk, lemon juice and butter just until combined. Toss TURTLES MINI Original Recipe with remaining flour until well coated. 

Insert a wooden skewer into a TURTLES Mini and dip in batter; shake off excess. Carefully lower into hot oil; use another wooden skewer to release fritter into oil. Cook (up to 5 pieces at a time), using tongs or a wooden spoon to rotate fritters, for 2 or 3 minutes or until golden brown. Adjust heat to maintain oil temperature if necessary. 

Use a slotted spoon to transfer fritters to a paper towel-lined tray; let cool slightly. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
