Great lunchbox or after school snack for the kids, even my 16 month old daughter ate these spread with a little cream cheese. Recipe doesn't say how much milk but just added enough to make a pancake consistency and they turned out great, used grated apple also.
The recipe failed to say how much milk. I mixed in enough to make a batter, about 1/3-1/2 cup. These fritters were not crispy like I wanted but I live in Mexico so maybe the humidity had something to do with it.
