The Best Amish Apple Fritter Recipe Ever
When it comes to simple apple desserts, you'll be happy to know that this is The Best Amish Apple Fritter Recipe Ever. These fritters come out light, fluffy and full of apple flavor that is to die for. These sweet doughnut-like apple treats are made by creaming the sugar and eggs along with other ingredients until it all blends in well together and then deep-fried. When they’re ready, they will have a beautiful golden brown tint with crispy edges and then served with a warm vanilla glaze. If you don’t have the time to make the glaze, you may drizzle some maple syrup on top, or coat them with cinnamon or vanilla sugar as well. Another great alternative in the place of plain vanilla glaze is a caramelized vanilla sugar glaze. The cooked apple inside tastes divine with soft and fluffy fried dough on the outside. Since these apple fritters tend to soften as they sit, it's recommended to serve them immediately after making them, or they will turn too soggy due to the moisture in the apples. Also when you’re combining the ingredients, do not over mix so that they come out fluffy. You can make these fritters in no time if you want to serve them for breakfast.
In this recipe, you can replace the regular milk with homemade buttermilk made from scratch to add a better texture to the fritters. Just begin by combining one cup of milk with a tablespoon of vinegar and let the mixture it sit for about five minutes. You will notice the curdling of milk which is the buttermilk that you have just made. For this recipe, you may also use a gluten-free flour or try the readymade buttermilk pancake flour that works equally fine. Another important method to prevent the apples from turning brown is to drown the apple pieces in lemon juice. The lemon juice will prevent the oxidation. In case you don’t have lemon juice, you can soak the apple bits in a bowl of water. When you’re ready to use the apple bits, just strain the water and add them to the batter as usual. You can make this recipe using all kinds of fruits like pineapple, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, etc. Apples are loaded with vitamin B6 and C with high dietary fiber and no saturated fats or cholesterol. With numerous health benefits that come from the nutrition in apples, it is hard not to use them in desserts.
If you don't own a fryer, you can use any deep dish with a hard bottom that is available for frying. Always make sure that you have the right tools like tongs or a deep-frying spoon to retrieve the food from the hot oil. Keep a good amount of distance while retrieving the fried food from the hot oil to prevent accidents. Be careful while choosing the frying oil and always pick the one with a higher smoke point such as Peanut, soybean, coconut or sunflower oils. To avoid any spilling, fill the frying pot with oil no more than half or just until a small batch of food drowns completely in the oil.
