Amish Apple Fritter
When it comes to trying out simple apple desserts, you'll be happy to know how ridiculously easy this Amish Apple Fritters recipe is. These sweet doughnut-like apple treats are made by creaming the sugar and eggs along with other ingredients until it all blends in well together and then deep-fried. When they’re ready, they will have a beautiful golden brown tint and then glazed with a caramelized vanilla sugar before serving. The warm cooked apple inside tastes divine with crispy dough on the outside. Since these apple fritters tend to soften as they sit, it's recommended to serve them immediately after making them, or they will turn too soggy due to the moisture in the apples. You can make these fritters in no time and serve it for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee.
In this recipe, you can substitute the milk with homemade buttermilk for greater texture by combining one cup of milk with a tablespoon of vinegar. You may also use a gluten-free flour or try the readymade buttermilk pancake flour as well. The lemon juice in this recipe is used to prevent the apples from turning brown. But if you don’t have lemon juice readily available, you can keep the apple bits covered with water. When you’re ready to use them, just strain the water off before combining them in the batter. If you don’t like to pour the glaze over these fritters, you can coat them in cinnamon or vanilla sugar as well. Don’t limit yourself to just apple fritters. You can make this recipe using all kinds of fruit like pineapple, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, etc.
If you don't have a fryer at home, you can use any deep pot that is available for frying. Always make sure to use the right tools like tongs or a deep-fry spoon to extract the food from the hot oil. Maintain a distance while retrieving the food from the hot oil to prevent any accident. Remember to choose the right frying oil with a higher smoke point such as Peanut, soybean, or sunflower oils. To avoid any spillovers, fill the frying pot with the oil no more than half full or just until a small batch of food submerges completely in the oil. Apples are packed with vitamin B6 and C and high in dietary fiber with no saturated fats or cholesterol. With several health benefits that come from the nutrition in apples, it is hard not to use them. The nutrition in apples is another perfect reason to make more dessert recipes.
