how long can prepared fritter batter sit before being fried? it's a wheat flour-baking powder-egg-milk batter for apple fritters.
Like pancake batter, you should be able to hold it refrigerated for a few days, but the leavening won't be as active.
thanks, susan g! it ended up that i was able to make the batter and fry up the fritters pretty much right away. i did learn that i should have let the whole batch of batter sit for maybe 15 minutes before i started, as i found the last half of the batter was a little more tender than the first half.
