Fritters for Days!

I love fritters! Fritters are my fave! Seriously, I can’t go to a new donut shop without trying their fritters. If you can’t fry a good fritter, then you can’t call yourself a good donut shop. I couldn’t let this year go by without sharing another fritter bite recipe and blueberry was a no-brainer for the flavor choice. Blueberry fritters are definitely my fave! These little bites of blueberry bliss turned out so so delicious!

Moist and tender on the inside with fresh juicy blueberries all throughout while still nice and crisp on the outside (like a good fritter should be!). They’re covered in a sweet blueberry glaze for an even bolder blueberry fritter experience. These little fritter bites are always a crowd favorite when I make them for breakfast or brunch. They’re easy to make, hard to believe they’re baked, and party perfect!

How to Make Baked Blueberry Fritters

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, egg, vanilla and yogurt. Add the yogurt mixture to the flour mixture and stir until well combined.

  • Fold in the blueberries. Scoop batter evenly into prepared muffin cups, filling each one almost full. Bake for 15 minutes or until they just start to turn light brown on top.
  • Remove the fritters from the oven and turn the oven broiler on high. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer the fritters to the baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk and blueberry jam until smooth.
  • One fritter at a time, dip the top into the glaze and set upright back on the baking sheet for the glaze to drizzle down the sides of the fritter. Place fritters in the oven and let broil until they start to crisp and caramelize on top, about 3-4 minutes. Rotate the baking sheets every minute to insure even caramelization. Be sure to watch the fritters carefully so they don’t blacken and burn. Once fritters start to turn brown in spots, remove from oven. Brush remaining glaze over the tops of the fritters. Let glaze set for about 15 minutes before enjoying them.

How to Serve and Store Blueberry Fritter Bites

I betcha can’t eat just one! 😉 If you’re a blueberry fritter lover like me, you’ll go crazy over these baked blueberry fritter bites.

For breakfast or brunch, serve baked fritter bites warm or at room temperature. For dessert, serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Store any leftovers in an airtight container on the counter for up to three days.

To freeze, allow fritters to cool completely. Then place them in a single layer in a freezer-safe container or in individual freezer-safe baggies. If layering, place parchment between the layers.

To defrost, let them them sit in the refrigerator, uncovered, so they don’t absorb too much of the moisture.

To reheat and crisp again, bake in a 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes.

  1. […] The Baker Mama – Maegan has the most adorable little family. She has twin boys, loves baking and we both have a big sweet tooth. […]

  2. Outstanding! Used a regular 12-muffin pan and added 5 mins to baking time. Moist and dense. 2 cups of yogurt means they’re “healthy” right? so 2 thumbs up! Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Hi Joy! They keep well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. To freeze them, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and place them in a large freezer safe bag or container for up to 2 months. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Deb! It’s certainly worth a try. I think the texture of the batter would cook up nicely in a waffle iron, but I’d have to try it to say for sure. Let me know if you give it a try. Fingers crossed!

  3. OMG!!! Made these for a brunch and they were GONE before the main course even hit the table!! Will need to double the recipe next time!! Incredibly easy to make and go great with a cup of coffee or a glass of cold milk! Would be great for upcoming holiday brunches!!

    1. Hi Maha! You can use regular or plain greek. The blueberry flavored yogurt just enhances the overall blueberry flavor of the fritters. Enjoy!

  4. I made these in 8 miniature loaf pans because I only had 16 mini muffin tins. Baked for 22 minutes. Wow they turned out amazing and the blueberry glaze was literally the icing on the cake! I will definitely make these again soon. Thank you for this recipe, I will be sharing your page on Facebook for my friends to try the recipe

    1. Hi Tammy! They would taste more like muffins if you skip the glaze and broil steps. They’ll still taste great, but won’t have that crisp outside like a fritter should. Enjoy!

  5. Just made these and WOW so delicious! Thank you so much for sharing 😊. Everyone raved about them!

    1. Hi Angelica! You can use sour cream or blended cottage cheese. Both have the best consistency to replace the yogurt with. Enjoy!

  6. Can’t wait to give these a try! I also watched your dad’s video of him making the boards. Going to look again in the morning as I think you have a new customer. Love them. Can you tell me about the little wired tray you show with this recipe? I’d love to get one.

    1. Hi Sue! I hope you enjoy these fritter bites when you give them a try. They are so yummy! The wire tray is either from Williams Sonoma or Crate and Barrel. I hope you find one of our boards that you love and use often. My dad is a true talent and creates the most beautiful boards! Enjoy!
