SMALL-FRY'S APPLE FRITTERS
PREPARATION: 4 hrs ~ COOK: 20min ~ READY IN: 4hrs 30min
- A few hours or the day before, soak the sultanas in the spiced rum and water.
- Peel, core and slice the apples. At the restaurant, we finely julienne the apples, but the recipe works with a chunkier cut too. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl with a fine wire whisk. Mix the milk and egg together in a separate bowl with the same fine wire whisk.
- Mix the wet and fry ingredients together with the same fine wire whisk, working the mixture to a fine batter. It’s OK to work the batter a little to remove lumps, a rest time will ensure the fritters are’t chewy. Mix the chopped apple and sultanas through the batter. Rest the batter for 2 hours before using.
- Fry until deeply golden brown (the spices in the mix will cause the fritters to be quite dark when fully cooked, they can be deceptive when a golden brown, and may be undercooked in the centre) in 180 degree celsius oil suitable for deep frying (canola, cottonseed, sunflower etc).
- Drain and serve.
