Fresh cherry fritters dipped in a simple vanilla glaze might just be the best bite of summer ever. These are naturally sweet, light fritters with juicy bites of ripe cherries.
- Water - Salted Butter - Sugar - Vanilla Extract - Cinnamon - Flour - Eggs - Cherries
In a medium sized pot, heat water, sugar and butter until it comes to a boil, then remove from heat.
Stir in vanilla extract, then add dry ingredients and stir well. It will be lumpy at first but keep stirring until it comes together in a ball and leaves the sides of the pan.
Add in eggs one at a time, stirring after each one until fully incorporated. The batter will become nice and glossy by the time all 4 eggs are incorporated.
Add pitted and halved cherries. Gently fold in the cherries. Don't overmix or the batter will become pink or even red.
Only add as many as can fit in one layer with a little space between each one. Cook until brown on one side, then flip and brown on the other side.
