Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup soda water
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 eggs separated
  • 3 apples
  • canola oil for deep-frying
  • safflower oil for deep-frying
  • sunflower oil for deep-frying
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar

Method

In large bowl, whisk together 1-1/4 cups of the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; whisk in soda water. Whisk in butter and egg yolks; cover and let stand for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry peaks form; fold into batter. Place bowl in larger bowl of ice water; let stand until cold, about 15 minutes.

Peel and core apples; cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes. Toss with remaining flour; fold into batter.

Meanwhile, in deep-fryer, wok or wide deep saucepan, heat about 2 inches (5 cm) oil until deep-fryer thermometer registers 350?F (180?C).

Using 1/4 cup for each, pour in batter to make 4 fritters. Cook, turning once, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towel–lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter. Sprinkle fritters with icing sugar; serve warm.
