Personal Notes:
These fritters are a hit with everyone. They're moist and chewy and the honey makes them so sweet. I love to serve these with lots of fresh strawberries. If you prefer a more savory taste, add some basil to the batter and increase the salt a bit. Omit the lemon zest and add some black pepper, and grated.locatelli cheese. After frying, sprinkle the fritters with more grated cheese. Serve the savory ones with roasted red peppers. Fantastic!
