Dandelion Flower Fried

Tantalisingly Tasty Dandelion Fritters

I absolutely love foraging for Dandelions, making up lion stories with Xanthe and coming home and turning these blossoms into something so tantialisingly tasty!
I am a little obssessed with flower recipes! It is also super cheap to make but feels very decadent. It only uses one egg, a little flour and a knob of butter. So what isn't to love!
Feel like getting creative?
Add your own creative flair by choosing your seasoning or why not add beer, sparking water or wine to your batter. The bubbles will add body and lightness.
Ooh my mouth is watering thinking about all the taste creations you could make. Elderflower Champagne Dandelion Flowers anyone?

Servings 2


  • 1 Handful Dandelion Flowers
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Large Knob Butter
  • 1 dash Vegtable Oil


  • Pop the flowers in a bowl of water (room temp water) and add some salt.
  • Combine flour (1 cup), salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Beat an egg and then coat the the Dandelions
  • Melt butter with a dash of oil in your pan (medium heat)
  • Remove Dandelions from the egg then pop them in your combined flour.
  • Toss them in your hands so the excess flour falls away
  • Pop the Dandelions in the melted butter with a dash for about 3 - 5 mins. They will go golden brown. Don't forget to stir them.
  • Add your own seasoning to make them your own - test the seasoning on one of them to make sure you like it!
