First of all, let me say that I was super scared to fry anything. I tried frying once -- about 20 some years ago -- and burned myself pretty badly. This time I made sure I had the right tools and lots of knowledge, and all went very well, indeed! No accidents, no scary moments. In fact, it wasn't even as messy as I thought it would be.
I used this recipe and I'm sure it would have been awesome if I could have used regular flour, but I used my gluten free mix instead and they turned out too dense. Don't get me wrong, we were chowing down on them -- especially when they were still hot! Next time I need to cut back the flour, or increase the buttermilk, or something. I think it would make a huge difference.
I see more frying in my future!
