Quick Apple Fritters – whole grain (or not)

Homemade Apple Fritters frying

What was it Homer Simpson used to say…. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM Donuts.  For me that is more likely to be MMMMMMMMMMM Apple Fritters,  so it’s probably not surprising that I’ve played with dozens of recipes over the years  – most yeast versions.  But this quick one is the one I keep coming back to – it’s fantastic AND as a quick donut it’s a snap to produce.  While I usually make them using fresh whole ground flour they work just as nicely with white flour.

The other nice thing is this recipe is that it scales wonderfully – from 1x to about 5x which is about the maximum I can manage to make with my deep fryer before it makes sense to do up another batch of batter – but given that takes all of five minutes it’s really no hardship.  So get out your apples, heat up the oil and get ready to enjoy.

Ingredients
Servings: fritters
Instructions
  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients
  2. Add egg and water and mix. Add water as necessary to achieve a batter like consistency. If you have "water" from thawing apples use this first in place of tap water.
  3. Mix in apple chunks into the batter
  4. Heat up your oil - Leave the apple batter about 10 minutes to rest for the leavening agents to work.
  5. Drop fritter batter into the hot oil. When bubbling slows which indicates most moisture has been baked out remove from the oil and drip dry.
  6. When cool dust fritters with icing sugar and enjoy.
