These sugary camote fritters were a popular snack made by the aunties at the Filipino orphanage we lived and worked at for a year!
- 2 cups peeled and grated camote (sweet potato)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- oil for frying
- white sugar for dusting
- Peel, grate, and rinse the camotes. Combine in a large bowl with the brown sugar, flour, and vanilla.
- Pour a thin layer of oil into a large pan (see picture). Bring the oil to a medium high heat. Drop the camote mixture by spoonfuls into the oil and fry until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
- Drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar before serving.
