Apple Fritter with Fruit Topping





The final item at our little dinner party was a delicious apple fritter topped with a fruit sauce. It was pretty easy to do, and sinfully rich so people ended up sharing plates of it. Well, I think that was also because everyone wanted to try it right away so as soon as Shankar finished plating one up, we would all fall upon it and devour it. If you like butter and apples, you'll like this. I promise. This recipe is from my bro-in-laws repertoire. And yes, he is also a really good cook!

Apple Fritters
1 Golden Delicious apple, 2 tbsp. powdered sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 2 tbsp. melted butter, ½ tsp. salt, 2 tsp. baking powder, 2 tbsp. sugar, ¾ cup milk

1. Peel and core the apple. Slice it into rings ⅛″ thick.
2. Mix the melted butter and the dry ingredients for the batter. Add the milk, stirring until a thick batter forms.
3. Dip each apple-ring into the batter,and fry in butter, flipping once, until golden brown.
4. Transfer the fritter onto a paper towel to blot up any excess oil. Dust with the cinnamon-sugar while still hot.

Fruit Topping
2 cups Frozen Mixed Berry Mix, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/4 cup honey, lemon zest, 1 tsp grated ginger, 1/2 tsp mace, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, pinch of salt, 1 tbsp butter, 1/2 cup spiced rum (optional)

1. Combine all the ingredients and bring to a simmer on medium heat approx 15-20 minutes.

Shankar served the fritters, dusted with icing sugar, and topped with the fruit sauce.

Verdict: The plates were licked clean.
