Cream Cheese Fritters, English Summer Maple Cherries…

Cream cheese fritters, English summer maple cherries. It’s officially summer ­– the season to enjoy fresh summer fruit, al fresco dining and BBQs in the garden.

Today I have a guest post : pure maple syrup from Quebec.

With English cherries at the height of their season this month, we’ve created a recipe to showcase them in all their glory.

Our cream cheese fritters with English summer cherries and pure maple syrup from Quebec make a lovely breakfast, brunch or dessert.

The delicate creaminess of the cheese offsets the rich sweetness of the cherries and maple syrup to create a light yet indulgent summer treat.

Ingredients

For the fritters:

  • 200g cream cheese
  • 250g cottage cheese, well drained
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 40g maple sugar
  • 40g chopped raisins
  • Grated lemon zest
  • 75g plain flour (plus extra for dusting)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


For the cherries and maple syrup:

  • 175ml pure maple syrup from Quebec
  • 200g fresh cherries
  • 1 lemon, squeezed for juice

Method:

  1. Place cream cheese, cottage cheese, eggs, vanilla extract and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Beat until smooth. Stir in raisins and lemon zest.
  3. Sieve flour and combine.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for four hours, or overnight.
  5. Roll into balls with excess flour, flatten into disks.
  6. Place on baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  7. Melt butter and oil in frying pan and cook fritters for 2 minutes each side until golden brown.
  8. Keep warm in low oven.
  9. Heat maple syrup, lemon juice, cherries and 1 tbsp of water in a pan until cherries become soft.
  10. Serve the fritters warm with cherries.
  11. Any fresh of preserved fruit can be used. All seasonal fruits can be used e.g. poached pears and pineapple would be a good alternative.
