It is a Momstown Recipe Monday, and in honour of the first day of Fall and apple season I have made delicious authentic Polish Apple Fritters. My grandmother (who will be 88 next week!) used to make these and I wanted to re-create this special treat. I always love learning Polish recipes so that the tradition can continue with my family and so my two daughters will learn to love all the delicious foods that are part of their heritage. These fritters are so tasty – crispy on the outside with warm soft apple on the inside.
Check out the recipe here: http://momstown.ca/recipe/apple-fritters or posted below.
- 3/4 cup 1% buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp plus 1/8 tsp baking powder
- 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into thin circles with any core
- 2 cups canola oil
- icing sugar for dusting
- Whisk together buttermilk, egg, flour, salt, and baking powder until smooth. Let sit 15 minutes.
- Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan.
- Once oil is ready, dip apple rings into batter with a fork, turning to coat and place carefully into oil.
- Fry apples until golden (2-3 minutes per side).
- Remove to a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
- Once cool, transfer to a serving platter and dust with icing sugar.
