This is really different and good with maple syrup rather than the sugar. I really think this serves more like 2. The fritters are very small. They have an interesting texture. I did use egg replacer adding a couple more eggs that way because when I use it I feel it needs it to hold together properly. I also used a gluten-free white rice flour mixture.
