Elderflower Fritters

VegetarianVeganDairy FreeGluten Free

A simple but rewarding use for Elderflower heads.

Serves : 1+
Prep : 10 minutes
Cook : 1-2 minutes
  • Freshly picked medium Elderflower heads, cut with a couple inches of stem attached
  • Batter (use vegan or gluten free batter if required)
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Icing sugar
  • Lemon


  1. Gently shake any insects out of the Elderflower heads but do not wash them.
  2. Make a thin batter, or even a Tempura if you’re feeling adventurous and get your oil nice and hot.
  3. Gently dip the Elderflower heads into the batter mix (keep a good hold of the stem) and allow any excess to drip off back into the bowl.
  4. Slowly lower the Elderflower into the oil and allow to cook until the batter is light and golden, then place onto kitchen roll to soak up any excess oil.
  5. Serve with a lemon wedge and a sprinkle of icing sugar!
