Glazed Apple Fritters
Serving Size / Yield
- 5 whole green apples
- 3 Tbs unsalted butter
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ C brown sugar
- ¼ C apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp dry active yeast
- 3 ¼ all-purpose flour
- 1/3 C white sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- ½ C milk
- 2 eggs; beaten
- 1/3 C unsalted butter
- 1 ½ C powdered sugar
- 3 Tbs milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Wash, peel and chop the apples into small cubes. Put them in a bowl and submerge them in salt water so they do not brown. Set aside in the refrigerator.
In a bowl, mix together the yeast, 3 C flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Using a mixer or by hand, slowly mix in the milk and eggs until the dough begins to form.
Then gradually begin to add in the butter. Allow the first batch of butter to mix in completely before adding in the next. Once all the butter is added, throw in the remaining ¼ C of flour to bring the dough together.
Lightly oil a bowl, place the dough in and cling wrap the top. Set it aside and let the dough rise for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, heat a pan on medium-high and add in the 3 Tbs of butter. Stir it around until it begins to brown.
Take out the cut apples, drain them and add them into the pan. Throw in the brown sugar and cinnamon and keep stirring until apples become tender.
Pour in the apple cider vinegar and let it simmer until the liquid has been reduced.
Making the fritters:
Cover a board or any flat surface with some flour and plop the dough on top of it. Roll the dough out using a rolling pin. Form a large ½ inch thick rectangle.
At the end, add the apple mixture on one side and fold the remaining half over the filling like a sandwich. Pinch the sides to close them in.
Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into little square and line them on a tray with parchment paper. Once the dough has been cut and the squares lined, cover the tray with some cling warp and allow the dough and apple mixture to rise for an extra 30 minutes.
While the dough is rising, add the powdered sugar into a bowl. Pour in the milk and vanilla; mix until it becomes smooth. Set aside. Microwave the glaze for a few seconds if it begins to harden.
Prepare a tray with paper towels and a pot with hot oil for deep-frying.
Carefully put in 2-3 fritters into the oil. Allow it to fry for 1-2 minutes. Turn it occasionally to ensure even cooking.
When it is done, remove from the oil and let it set on the paper towel.
Repeat until all the fritters are cooked.
Finally, while it is still warm, brush some of the glaze on the fritters and serve.
