Apple Fritters

Adapted from: The Taste of Italy by Frederic Lebain & Jean Paul Paireault


2 apples – peeled & diced
½ cup orange juice
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/8 cups flour – sifted
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ cup ground almonds
½ cup milk
2 egg yolks
¼ cup sugar
oil for deep frying
powdered sugar for dusting

Marinade the apples in the orange juice and the balsamic vinegar for about 15 minutes.

Mix together the flour, baking powder and the ground almonds.

Whisk together the sugar and the egg yolks until almost white.

Beat together the egg mixture and the flour mixture. Stir in the milk and beat well.

Add the flour and egg mixture to the apples in their marinade. Stir gently to blend the ingredients together evenly. Allow to rest for about 10 minutes.

Heat the oil and gently add spoonfuls of apple and fritter mixture. Allow to cook through and turn golden brown, then remove with a slotted spoon.

Drain on paper towels and serve either hot or cold.

Dust with powdered sugar.

This is a unique dessert that is sure to please!

Enjoy and Cook with Love,
