Apple fritters Tuesday September 30, 2008, 1 comments

The recipe I promised the other day, and the perfect thing for apple season. It’s more or less the Joy of Cooking recipe, and we absolutely love it. We don’t make it often – deep fried apples! – but usually a couple times a year, Christmas morning for example.

For your enjoyment:

Apple Fritters

In a medium sized bowl, mix:

1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

In another bowl, whisk together:

2/3 cup milk
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon melted butter

Gradually stir this mixture into the dry ingredients until smooth.

Pour into a shallow baking dish the juice of one lemon.

Peel and core four large firm apples. Cut into ¼-inch slices. Add these to the lemon juice, then turn to coat the apple slices.

Fill a deep, heavy-bottomed pot (we use our awesome orange 5 qt Le Creuset pot) with 3 inches of vegetable oil. Heat to 375°F (medium, then reduce to medium low)

In another medium sized bowl, beat 2 large egg whites (room temperature) until the peaks are stiff, but not dry.

Fold the eggs into the batter. Working with a few apple slices at a time, shake off the lemon juice and dip them into the batter, letting the excess drip off. Immediately drop the slices into the hot oil and deep-fry, turning once, until golden brown and puffed. Drain the fritters on paper towels and keep warm in a 250°F oven until all are finished.

You can serve the fritters sprinkled with a bit of powdered sugar, but we prefer them with real maple syrup.
