These fritters had a great texture but lacked on flavor. We ended up having to throw them out because no one wanted to eat them. I would make them again but add seasonings for flavor.

Best ever. I grew up near the Old Tavern. Mom and I loved the fritters.

A little bland to our liking. Will add sugar or honey to the batter next time. Very nice and light, not greasy at all.

You can also try injecting them with honey. We think they are great as is, but we are not big on salt in our house.

first glace I thought the batter was too thin, but they turned out great- we had with syrup and everyone enjoyed.

I didn't like it with the sugar or the syrup. Needs salt, but I don't know how much for a full recipe; we added some to later batches.

I live just down the street from where this recipe came from.. a favorite dish... however, the restaurant has since closed and I am very happy that they gave this recipe to Taste Of Home
