Preheat an electric griddle to 375 degrees or cast iron skillet over medium heat.
Once griddle is to temperature, rub the griddle with a stick of butter, coating the griddle well.
Use two spoons to drop batter onto the griddle, flatten slightly.
Cook 3 minutes per side, flipping once.
Remove to paper towel lined baking sheet and season with salt.
Working in batches, wipe off the griddle with a paper towel and re-coat with butter, continue cooking fritters until all batter has been cooked.
