Apple fritter is a good and delicious snack. With the apple melting in your mouth, you’ll want to finish the bowl of apple fritters. I have made this for my kids many times, their reactions were still the same each time. The first time I made it, I used one apple but the kids wanted more apple in it. So in this recipe, I used three apples but diced smaller, if you want a lesser apple you can use one, and the outside would look like a Nigerian Puff puff little bit smoother if you use more than one apple the outer look “rough” because the apple would stick out.
This recipe was first published in October 2017 but I didn’t detail the pictorial process, so that is why I’m updating the post. Enjoy and let’s get started.
You might want to try;
- 2 Cups Cake Flour
- 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 2 Apple (Peeled, cored, and diced)
- 2 Teaspoons Baking powder
- 1 Cup Whole milk
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Egg
- 2 Tablespoons Melted butter
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla extract
- Confectioner Sugar (for serving)
- Oil for frying
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, flour, sugar; baking powder and salt, set aside.
In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients; milk, melted butter, egg, vanilla extract.
Whisk wet and dry ingredients together, then the diced apple. Mix all together.
Fill and heat fryer or pot with oil and let heat over medium-high heat to about 350 degrees F. If you don't have a thermometer, scoop just a dollop size of the batter and add to the oil, if it floats immediately without turning brown, the oil is hot enough to fry.
Add about a 1/2 cup of water in a cup with a drizzle of oil, dip an ice cream scoop or your clean hand into the cup and scoop batter.
Fry in the hot oil and when it's brown enough flip to the other side and fry until golden brown.
Drain on a pan lined with paper towels.
Serve and sprinkle Confectioner sugar (if desired). Enjoy.
If you don't have cake flour here is the substitution;
1 cup of all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons of cornstarch.
