Everyone loves these sweet fritters, made of 7 basic ingredients. The batter is whipped up in only a couple of minutes and frying is also quick and easy.
The fritters are amazingly soft and tangy thanks to the Greek yogurt added to the batter.
If you fancy small, fried bite-sized treats like these, we recommend you to try also our sweet ricotta fritters.

Once you have all the ingredients prepared, you will whip up the batter literally in a few minutes.
Combine FLOUR BAKING POWDER in one bowl, while in another whisk (using a balloon whisk) an EGG, SUGAR, GREEK YOGURT, SALT and finely grated LEMON ZEST. Gradually add flour to the egg/yogurt mixture and whisk again, until you get a thick dough.
For the frying, fill deep frying pan with sunflower oil (3-4 cm deep) and heat to the 170°C (338°F). We suggest you to use a smaller pan so you don't need too much oil.
The oil temperature should be around 170°C/338°F. If the oil is too cold, the fritters will soak up too much oil. In the case the oil is too hot, the fritters will burn on the outside but remain uncooked in the middle.
If you don't have a kitchen thermometer, just drop a pinch of batter into the oil. If it floats on the surface in a few seconds and browns slowly, the temperature is right. If it doesn't start bubbling, the oil is not yet ready. In the case it browns too quickly, the oil is too hot and you should lower the temperature.
These little fritters are the best immediately upon frying. Just dust them with some icing sugar and enjoy while still warm! They are also great topped with melted chocolate or served with a spoon of your favourite jam (we love Good Good jams made with natural sweeteners). Homemade lemon curd also pairs amazingly with sweet yogurt fritters!
