I have "wowed" many of my friends with these fritters. They all love them and can't seem to get enough of them! I omit the white pepper though. I serve them with coconut ice cream then drizzle the whole plate with caramel sauce then dust it with powdered sugar. Its also good with vanilla ice cream too. Yum yum yum. item not reviewed by moderator and published
