*A flax egg can be made by mixing 1 tbsp of ground flax seed mixed with 2 tbsp of water.
What is a flax egg?
A flax egg is a vegan egg alternative made by combining ground flax seed with water.
Once combined, the mixture should be left for 5 minutes to allow the flax seeds to expand. This makes the mixture thicker and gives it a gluey texture, helping bind together your cakes or bakes.
Why are my corn fritters soggy?
Soggy fritters are far from pleasant but are unfortunately common. One of the biggest causes of a soggy fritter is too much batter, too much filling, and the ingredient seeping excess water.
When preparing the fresh ingredients, be sure to remove as much excess water as possible. If using frozen ingredients, allow food to thaw out and dry with a paper towel.
Avoid adding too much filling or batter to the fritter, this will make it difficult for the oil to fry the fritter and rather it will simply absorb into the fritter causing it to be soggy.
