After an unsuccessful attempt at apple fritters last weekend, I'd like to give it another try.

Does anyone have an "easy" but delicious recipe I can try?

  1. Apple fritters like doughnut dough with chopped apples in them, or apple slices, dipped in a delicate, puffy batter?

        oh, sorry...the kind with apple slices/rings dipped in a batter and then fried.
        My batter the last time was a bit too thick and did not coat the entire apple slice; i also am not an experienced "fryer" so i didn't fry them up v.well or evenly as well.
        Any tips? Thanks!

          I have to confess that I haven't made these in years, if at all. I am looking over the recipes in "The Joy of Cooking", 1975 Edition, and there are some good tips there, under "Griddle Cakes and Fritter Variations"..
          One of the tips is to have the surface of the food as dry as possible.
          From the Joy of Cooking: Beat batter well, cover, and refigerate overnight. This allows the batter to relax and the stringy aspect is diminished. It should adhere to the fruit better.

          I'd also suggest lightly flouring the cut side of the apple rings before dipping in the batter.
          According to the J of C, use of beer or wine in the batter also helps relax it better and adhere more readily.

          Hope this helps.
