Apple Fritters
Beer-battered fried apples in sugar - contributed by Michael F. Gunter
  • 1 1/4 cup ale or beer
  • 1 Tbs. dry yeast
  • 1 cup flour
  • optional: 1 egg or 2 egg yolks
  • 3-4 apples (e.g. Macintosh)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • oil or shortening for frying
  • confectioners sugar
Heat the beer to lukewarm. Put the yeast in a medium sized bowl and add 1/4 cup of the beer; stir and let sit about 10 minutes. Mix in the flour, egg yolks or egg if desired, salt, and remaining beer. Beat the mixture and then cover the bowl. Leave in a warm place for about an hour. It should at least double in bulk.

Peel the apples, core them and cut into wedges or rings. Put the apple slices in the batter and stir to coat them. Fry quickly in oil or deep fat. Sprinkle with sugar and serve.
