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)
