  • 3 eggs
  • 125 g (~ 2/3 cup) self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • Small bunch fresh chives, chopped
  • 100 g mature cheddar cheese, grated (~ 1 cup when grated)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • To serve: tomato chutney (optional)


  • Whisk the eggs for a minute or two, until slightly frothy. Add the flour and sour cream, and gently fold together. The mixture should be a 'dollop-able' consistency - you can add a little more flour if too runny, or a little more sour cream or a dash of milk if it's too thick.
  • Add the chopped chives, grated cheese and a good pinch of salt and pepper, and mix again.
  • Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, and add a spoonful of the batter. I prefer slightly smaller fritters, so I used around a tablespoon of the mixture each time. Cook for a few minutes each side, until golden brown. Set aside while you repeat with the remaining mixture (you can cook a few fritters at a time, just don't crowd the pan). You may need to add a little more oil to the pan occasionally.
  • Best eaten immediately, topped with more sour cream, chopped chives, and tomato chutney.
