National Apple Day

So today, the 21st October just happens to be National Apple Day…who knew?
We will certainly take that as excuse to make as many yummy apple themed treats as humanly possible (sorry waistline) why don’t you join us…..APPLE FRITTER DOUGHNUTS WITH SALTED CARAMEL ICE CREAM Batter
140g All-purpose flour
1/4 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tbsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
1 large Egg
280ml Buttermilk
4 large Apples

Sugar coating
100g Cinnamon for coating
100g Sugar for coating
Vegetable oil, for frying
Yee Kwan Salted Butter Caramel Ice Cream

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar and salt.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the egg and buttermilk and then whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture just until combined.
Slice the apples into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Using the cookie cutters, cut each apple slice into rings, discarding the center core.
Add 3 inches of oil to a large heavy-bottomed pot set over medium heat. Line a sheet tray with paper towels.
When the oil reaches 180C, begin by dipping each apple slice in the batter, shaking off any excess then carefully lowering it into the oil.
Add several apple slices to the oil but do not overcrowd the pot. Flip the apple slices occasionally so that they brown on all sides then using tongs, transfer them onto the paper towel-lined baking sheet.
Repeat the battering and frying process with the remaining apple rings.
While still warm, dip each fritter into the sugar cinnamon mixture, shake off any excess and serve with salted caramel ice cream.

Did you know…it takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider…LETS GET PICKING!!
