Dandelion Flower Fritters Recipe

This variation on pancakes uses the yellow puffs of the dandelion, a good source of Vitamin A.

Step 1

In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat egg, then mix with milk or water and olive oil. Combine with dry mixture. Stir in yellow flowers carefully, taking care not to crush them. Lightly spray a griddle or frying pan with vegetable oil. Heat until thoroughly warmed. Pour batter onto griddle by spoonfuls and cook like pancakes.
