In British fish and chip shops, the fish and chips can be accompanied by “fritters”, which means a food item, such as a slice of potato, a pineapple ring, an apple ring or chunks, or mushy peas, fried in batter. Hence: “potato fritter”, “pineapple fritter”, “apple fritter”, “pea fritter”, etc. At home and at school, fritters are also sometimes made with meat, especially Spam and corned beef.

Apple, Cheddar and Bacon Fritters in Caramel Sauce

In the United States, fritters are small cakes made with a primary ingredient that is mixed with an egg and milk batter and either pan-fried or deep-fried; wheat flour, cornmeal, or a mix of the two may be used to bind the batter. “Corn fritters” are often made with whole canned corn and are generally deep-fried. “Apple fritters” are well known, although the American apple fritter is unlike the British one. Clam cakes and crab cakes are varieties of fritter. Another regional favorite is the “zucchini fritter”.

Corn fritters are a very popular menu item in cafes across Melbourne, Australia. Whitebait fritters are popular in New Zealand.
