With the best of summer behind us it’s time to get back to the kitchen and try using some of the great fresh fruit and vegies coming out of the garden. Apples a plenty this year so the first recipe though not healthy tastes really good:-) I haven’t made these for years but know it was a favorite at this time of year and again at Christmas. Simple to make but just a quick reminder to be cautious when working with hot oil.
You will need: Your Ankarsrum Mixer with small bowl and single beaters, sauce pan suitable to hold 1 1/2 inches of hot oil (I use my egg poacher) and paper towels or rack to drain them. A cooking thermometer is also a good idea to ensure your oil is the right temperature.
- 2 cups flour (I used 3/4 fresh ground and 1/4 white)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups chopped apples
- Cooking oil for deep frying
In sauce pan add cooking oil to get a minimum of 1 1/2 inches deep, you will likely need to add more later as Fritters absorb oil.
Mix together dry ingredients. Stir in milk and egg just till combined. Then on lowest peed add the apple. Once oil has reached 350F you can begin frying. To do this I used 2 tsp and scooped the batter with one and scraped with the other. Do not make them to big or the insdies will not be done before they burn. I cook them about 2 minutes and them flip over, once flipped I added another 6 to the pan. That way I could continually keep going and in no time had them done. This made about 4 dozen bite. As soon as I removed them to the drain tray I sprinkled about half of them with a mixture of 50/50 cinnamon and sugar, not necessary but my taste testers preferred these over the plain. These freeze well.
