Cream Puff Fritters Recipe

Cream Puff Fritters


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour, sifted
  • small pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • oil for frying

How to make Cream Puff Fritters

  1. Combine butter, salt and water in a small pot and bring to boil over low heat.
  2. Remove from heat and add in the flour mixing vigorously to avoid lumps. Mix until it has a paste consistency and holds in one piece.
  3. Let it sit in a bowl to cool down for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add in the eggs one at a time making sure to beat after every addition. You can do by hand but i prefer an electric mixer for a smoother consistency. Mix until the mixture becomes creamy and light.
  5. You can put the mixture in a pastry bag and pipe it over the hot oil but since I don't have any of those, I just use 2 spoons to form my fritters and fry them (about 300 F temp) until their golden brown. Watch out for the first one that you dropped in since they get brown faster than the others so give them a flip before they get too brown.
  6. Once golden brown you can take them off the oil and roll them over some cinnamon sugar.
Question from the Chef

“Other variations, aside from the cinnamon sugar would be pairing this with some melted chocolate, drizzle over some maple syrup, or just eat together with some jam or fruit preserves.”
