In this video learn Chef John’s technique for frying up apple fritters with the perfect, pillow-soft texture. For this recipe Granny Smith apples have the best taste, and he cubes a few then sautés them in brown butter, cinnamon and sugar. An easy dough is started with flour, baking soda and apple fritter spices like freshly grated nutmeg. Egg, sugar and melted butter are whisked together in a separate bowl, then the cooked apples get thrown in. Another secret to this recipe is sparkling cider! It has a good flavor and the carbonation adds a little lightness. After mixing everything together, use two spoons to scoop medium-sized balls into a couple of inches of hot oil and fry on each side for about 2 minutes. Remove from oil when golden-brown and cooked through and let them drain on some paper towels. While the fritters are cooling Chef John shows you how to whip up a simple but sumptuous apple cider glaze icing. Top with some shaved almonds or pumpkin seeds and be the hit of every holiday party.
