Peach Fritters

Peach is a delicious juicy fruit but not one of the  kids favorite. A mother always want to serve healthy food to the family, will not stop discovering new recipes. I tried many ways to serve peaches with my kids from cobblers to smoothies, and this fritter was a hit. When I served it on the table, my eldest son was hesitant to get a plate. He asked me what I cooked. I answered, "secret, you better taste it and find out by yourself". He  to took a bite while I was waiting for his reaction. I just love the look in his face when he said, "mommy, this is so delicious!". Then I asked, "Do you know what is it?". He replied, "Apple".  I told him that it was peach fritter. 

Banana fritter is one of the Philippines famous dessert, but what if you are in a country with no Filipino banana available? Worry not, we can substitute other fruits in place of banana and the taste is still awesome. Try peaches or any available fruit instead.
