Peter Rabbit's Favourite Carrot and Caraway Fritters
JenJen from Milk and Cookies is this month's host for Hay Hay it's Donna Day which is round number 6!

The theme - Fritters!

I first made these Carrot and Caraway Seed Fritters for my little Samantha's 1st birthday a couple of years ago, it was a Peter Rabbit, Beatrix Potter themed picnic. They were a big hit and have now become a firm favourite for lazy Sunday afternoons.

  • Peter Rabbit's Favourite Carrot and Caraway Fritters
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of wholegrain mustard
  • ½ teaspoon of caraway seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

  • ½ cup of grated aged cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup of flour
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • 1½ teaspoons of baking powder
  • olive oil
  • 100 grams of softened cream cheese
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper

  1. Whisk together the eggs, mustard, caraway seeds, salt and pepper.
