I have been seeing lots of posts about apple fritters on social media recently and I wanted to try to bring you a delicious recipe that comes together in under 30 minutes. You know me by now, I will try making dinner in as short a time as possible, because with both my busy schedule, I'm looking for easy recipes that the kids will enjoy.
These apple fritters were happily received by both my boys, even the little one who was sceptical as to why I would want to fry apples in the first place.
I prefer to fry these apple fritters until brown. Not golden. The golden rule for these fritters is, the more brown the better. They will stay crisper for longer. When they are golden fried then they tend to become soggy almost immediately. But as we fried them longer, they kept their shape and remained crispy for longer.
Another tip I wanted to share for these fritters was to only drizzle on the glaze, unless you have a crazy sweet tooth, control the amount of glaze you add to them. You can always add more, you can't take it away though right? So I usually just drizzle the glaze on top, then serve the rest of the glaze on the side for those who need more. And now onto the recipe:
Preparation Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
500 ml vegetable oil- for deep frying
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons butter- melted
3 apples- peeled, cored and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
200 grams icing sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
Combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix well and set aside.
In another bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla and milk. Whisk together and pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Fold in the ingredients until ALMOST combined. Do not over mix. If you can still see pockets of flour, that's ok.
Add the apples and mix to coat.
Pour in the melted butter and mix until combined.
Heat the oil in a pan until the temperature reaches 180c/ 350f.
Use an ice cream scoop to transfer the batter to the oil. Fry 4 at a timed avoid over crowding the pan.
Once they begin to brown, turn them over and fry until browned. Transfer to paper towels. Once the oil has been absorbed onto the paper towels, move to a wire rack.
Make the glaze: Combine the icing sugar, lemon juice and enough water to create a thin glaze. Mix well.
Drizzle the icing over the warm apple fritters. Serve warm.
