Looking to make Apple Fritters? Let us show you how!
These are so delicious and easy to make. The apples I have used are Granny Smiths. They give a little sharpness in flavour in contrast with the cinnamon sugar and also they’re a little firmer so when they are heated, the flesh holds firm.
This recipe is quick and easy, and uses very simple ingredients so you can make these at any time without having to write a long shopping list. They’re great for serving 1 or 2 people or indeed a crowd.
These fritters are best served immediately from cooking, warm with a nice drizzle of syrup, honey, fruit sauce, ice cream, whipped cream.. yes.. you’ve guessed it. The topping choices go as far as your imagination
How to Make Apple Fritters
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 2 – 3 Minutes
Serves: 2 apples
3/4 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons or 100 All Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 Pint or 150 ml water
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 Apples, I prefer Granny Smiths.
Sugar and / or ground cinnamon, nutmeg etc for coating
1. In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt.
2. Add the water and oil and combine with a hand whisk. The consistency should be thick, like heavy cream and be able to coat a spoon. If it is too thick, add a drop more water, too thin, add a little more flour. Set aside.
3. Heat a pan with vegetable oil until it reaches 180 C or 350 F. Make sure you do not over fill the pan with oil. I use a small saucepan and cook in batches, filling the pan 1/3rd deep with cooking oil.
4. While the oil is heating up, peel and core the apple, then cut in to rings about 1 1/2 cm or 1/2 inch thick. Dip each apple slice in the batter so it is fully coated and carefully place in the pan, cooking both sides until golden brown. ** To tell if the oil is hot enough, drop a tiny bit of batter, the size of a pea in to the oil. If it sizzles and floats to the top immediately, the oil is hot enough.
5. Place the fritters on some kitchen paper then dip into a bowl with sugar and cinnamon if using, to coat.
Serve immediately as they are or with some syrup drizzled over the top or a blob of ice cream!
