These are a bit different that the American version of Apple fritters, in that the apples are not chopped into tiny little bits and then added to the dough. Rather, apple slices are coated and then fried. I tried something a little different myself, opting for a doughnut type slice of apple, as opposed to an apple segment. But hey, that’s me. I’m a rebel.
The oil recommended for frying? Sunflower.
- 1 1/2 cups AP Flour
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 5 Tablesspoons Marsala wine
- grated lemon rind from 1/2 lemon
- 2 Tablespoons Sugar
- 6 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1 cup Marsala wine
- 1/4 cup sugar
Blend the flour, eggs, milk, 5 Tablespoons of Marsala, lemon rind and 2 Tablespoons sugar in a large mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.
Combine 1 cup Marsala wine and 1/4 cup sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add apple slices and allow to marinate for 10 minutes. The wine does not have to coat every slice.
Bring oil up to temperature, about 350 degrees.
Dipe the apple slices in the batter and deep fry until brown. Turn them over as needed in order to ensure through cooking. Remove the fritters from the oil and drain on paper towels. Coat immediate with sugar and cinnamon.
