Thanks. I am going to look on utube for Apple Fritters. Never had or seen here in the UK.
I used the Foodwishes.com method. IT on Youtube and on the blog. I scaled it down for two old adults.
MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE SPARKLING APPLE CIDER (buy a 4-pack of small bottles, one small bottle does two sessions)
Makes 8 -11 small fritters – have ingredients at room temperature overnight
Start the cooking oil warming in a small saucepan and monitor with digital BBQ thermometer, set alarm to 350 deg F
Blend these Dry ingredients
½ cup + 3 Ts flour
¾ tspn baking powder
¼ tspn salt
½ tspn cinnamon
1/8 tspn ginger
1/16 tspn grated nutmeg
1/8 cup sugar
1 Granny Smith apple cut into bits and sautéed in 1Tbs butter
Add 1 Tb BROWN sugar at the last minute
(optional - Lastly Add extra Tbs butter and mix well)
Combine dry ingredients with warm apples
Add: ¼ cup + 1+ Tbsps Sparkling Apple Cider
Add extra apple cider as needed to the batter. (last time no extra was needed)
Do NOT make batter too stiff.
COOK in 2” of oil at 350 (max) deg F (drop batter into oil using a pair of spoons), about 2 min per side
Use the ice cream scoop – (not the large one) – do 34 at a time on small burner on LOW-PLUS 2 marks (bring oil up to temp on Simmer while doing food prep). Cook 3 at a time is best.
Use the digital BBQ thermometer to monitor the oil temperature
Glaze to drizzle over: icing sugar, cinnamon, apple cider (or hot water) – mix in small bowl with back of soup spoon.. Do not make too thick.
1 cup = 16 tablespoons
Use the “18/8” mechanical spoon !!! It makes around 11 small fritters
(the “40” spoon makes 9 larger fritters)
