Strawberry Fritters with Chocolate Sauce

Austin Geraldson

"This is my own take on beignets, a classic French dessert recipe. I take fresh strawberries, coat them with batter, then fry them, beignet-style. These strawberry fritters make my mouth water, they are so good. I love the combination of airy, crisp pastry, with lightly cooked fresh strawberries, and rich chocolate sauce."

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/4 cup butter, 1/3 cup cream, eggs, salt, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add the strawberries to the batter and fold gently to coat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  3. Meanwhile, make the chocolate sauce by combining the chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons butter, vanilla extract, and 1/4 cup cream in a microwave-safe dish. Place in the microwave and cook on medium-high heat stirring every 30 seconds until the chocolate chips are melted and the chocolate sauce is smooth. Set the dish on a kitchen towel and cover to keep warm.
  4. Working in batches, carefully drop the batter-coated strawberries into the hot oil. Fry until the batter is golden brown, flipping the strawberries to brown both sides evenly. Remove the cooked strawberry fritters and place on paper towels to drain. Dust with confectioners' sugar and drizzle with chocolate sauce to serve. Serve remaining chocolate sauce on the side.

I made these for my in-laws to top off our appetizer dinner. My FIL raved about them and even added whipped cream. I liked them, they reminded me of fair food. Kind of like a funnel cake coating...

I guess my family and I just don't like warm strawberries... I give it a three as it was a good recipe, just not something we cared for at all...

It was pretty darn good! kind of reminded me of strawberry shortcake. The fritter batter turned out too thin so ended up having to add more flour. Also, I think instead of semi-sweet that dark c...

I would prefer a thicker batter.

I stuffed mine with cheesecake, it was ridiculous
