A delightful breakfast recipe using maple syrup from Quebec.
Delicious cream cheese fritters served with English summer cherries and maple syrup.
- 200 g cream cheese
- 250 g cottage cheese well drained
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
- 40 g maple sugar
- 40 g chopped raisins
- Grated lemon zest
- 75 g plain flour plus extra for coating
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 175 ml pure maple syrup from Canada
- 200 g fresh cherries
- 1 lemon squeezed for juice
Place cream cheese, cottage cheese, eggs, vanilla extract and sugar in a bowl. Beat until smooth.
Stir in raisins, lemon zest.
Sieve flour and combine.
Cover and refrigerate for four hours, or overnight.
Roll into balls with excess flour, flatten into disks. Place on baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Melt butter and oil in frying pan and cook fritters for 2 minutes each side until golden brown.
Keep warm in low oven.
Heat maple syrup, lemon juice, cherries and 1 tbsp of water in a pan until cherries become soft.
Serve the fritters warm with cherries. Any fresh or preserved fruit can be used.
All seasonal fruits can be used e.g. poached pears and pineapple would be a good alternative.
