These delicious apple fritters are often made for Chanukah and Tu Bi-Shevat, the Festival of the Trees. For a variation, try making them with other fruit, such as bananas, strawberries, apricots or figs.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 tart apples
4-5 tablespoons brandy
olive oil, for deep-frying
icing sugar, for dusting

For the batter

Quantity Ingredient
125g unbleached plain flour
pinch salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 egg, separated
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons dry white wine

Method

  1. For the batter, combine the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg yolk, olive oil, wine and 75ml water and mix well, then gradually stir in up to another 75ml water to make a smooth batter. Leave to stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, peel and core the apples and cut into rounds about 5mm thick. Place in a shallow bowl and pour over the brandy. Let the apples steep for 30 minutes.
  3. To ‰finish the batter, in another bowl, whisk the egg white until stiffŠ and then gently fold into the batter. Working in batches, dip the apple rings into the batter and deep-fry in hot oil until golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels and serve at once, dusted with icing sugar.
