How to make Apple Fritters
Start by preparing the batter: put the egg, 1 tablespoon of sugar, milk and a pinch of salt in a bowl and beat by hand with a whisk,
add the sifted flour and baking powder,
turn everything and let it rest for half an hour.
In the meantime, wash and peel the apples, remove the core with the appropriate tool,
and cut into donut-shaped slices 1 cm thick, if you do not have the tool to remove the core you can also cut the apple into wedges creating half-moon-shaped pancakes put the apple slices in a plate and sprinkle them with lemon juice, after the batter has rested, place the apple slices on a paper towel to remove the excess lemon juice, then pass the apple slices on both sides in the sugar and cinnamon (2 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon mixed - or vanillin instead of cinnamon - which you will have put in a dish)
Put a high-sided pan on the heat and add plenty of peanut oil, let the oil heat up do the test with a toothpick, when the tip dipped in the beautiful oil begins to sizzle then the temperature will be right) dip the apple slices in the batter and dip them in hot oil,
fry on both sides until golden brown, take the pancakes with a slotted spoon and place them on a plate with absorbent paper to absorb excess oil. Put the pancakes on a serving dish and sprinkle with icing sugar, serve still hot. And here are yours Apple pancakes. Enjoy your meal!
