For those of you who love apples and doughnuts, these fritters are a delicious combination of the two – crispy on the outside with soft, tart apple in the middle.

I sometimes make a dipping sauce of cream cheese, cinnamon and honey to serve with these.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
225g self-raising flour
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
pinch ground nutmeg
pinch ground cloves
2 large granny smith apples, peeled and cut into 5 mm cubes
2 eggs, beaten
180ml whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
butter, for frying
icing sugar, to serve

Method

  1. Combine the flour, sugar, ginger, nutmeg and cloves together in a bowl. Add the apple and toss around in the dry mixture until all the cubes are well coated. Pour in the eggs, milk and vanilla extract and stir gently until everything is combined.
  2. Put a small knob of butter into a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Use a large spoon to add a portion of apple batter to the pan. Spoon more fritters into the pan, but don’t overcrowd it – I find doing 4–5 at a time is enough. Fry for 2–3 minutes until golden and then flip the fritters over to fry the other side for a further 2–3 minutes until golden and crisp all over. Remove the fritters from the pan using a slotted spoon or spatula and drain on kitchen towel. Add more batter to the pan and continue cooking until all the batter is finished. You can crisp the fritters back up in a very hot oven for 5 minutes before serving.
