Apple Fritters for Breakfast...or Whenever, Really
She has never made it before as she doesn't cook, and so she passed to recipe to me and I made it this morning for our breakfast. I made a full recipe, and her host mum made the same for 6-8 people, but the two of us and a friend wolfed the entire batch down. They were so good!
No picture this time - I will definitely snap one the next time I make these little delights!
1 1/2 tspbaking powder
1 capple (chopped or i like to smash/process my apple a little so the flavour spreads more)
2 cpowdered sugar (i use 1 cup for a thinner consistency)
1 1/2 Tbspmilk
1 tspvanilla extract (optional)
How to Make Apple Fritters for Breakfast...or Whenever, Really
- In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir in milk and egg till just combined. Mix in chopped apple.
- Pour oil into a skillet, oil should be about 1 1/2 inches deep. Heat oil on high. (I usually test the oil by inserting a wooden chopstick into the oil right to the base of the skillet, little bubbles should surround the chopstick and rise to the surface) Line a plate with a paper towel.
- Drop heaping tablespoons of the mixture into the hot oil. Cook for 2 minutes and then flip to other side to cook for another two minutes. Fritters should be nicely browned.
- Transfer the cooked fritters to the paper towel to absorb excess oil. (I have a wire mesh that fits over 1/3 of my skillet so I leave my fritters there to drip for a bit before transferring them to the paper towel)
- Remove fritters from the paper towel when the excess oil has been absorbed so they don't sit in the oil.
- For the glaze, mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla (if using) together and drizzle on one side of the fritter. Leave for a bit to harden, then flip fritter over and drizzle on other side. Serve warm. (We couldn't wait to eat them so I just dusted powdered sugar on our fritters)
