Recipe by Brenda.

I found this while searching for African desserts- It sounds good. I'm guessing at the quantity this will make.

WONDERFUL TASTING FRITTERS, these are & easy to make, too! I actually got only 11 of them from this mixture, but then, I also used a soup spoon instead of a teaspoon, 'cause that seemed like such an insignificant amount! Anyway, big or little, these are definitely a treat! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Africa on the Zaar World Tour 4]
