Reviews for Rhubarb Fritters
"I agree- the batter is a bit soupy. Making these fritters is like making hush puppies- You'll have to tweak it in order for it to come out right. After tweaking, the fritters came out perfect and enjoyable!"
"Is something missing from this recipe? The batter is really soupy so I added more flour. In addition the fritters come out flat as pancakes. Nothing like the round balls shown in the pictures. Please look in to this. Thank You."
