PLEASE HELP--IN NEED OF APPLE FRITTER RECIPE
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?
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.
