Lets Bake - Great Kids Cooking Recipes
Little Kitchen is so much more than a children's cookbook. With child inspired cookware, kids cooking equipment, childrens utensils and also stockists
of the Junior Masterchef cookware range your little foodies will be baking up a storm in no time! Try these scrumptious apple fritters, we love them for brunch with a cup of milky.
- ½ cup plain ﬂour
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 egg, separated
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 Granny Smith apples
- ¼ cup vegetable oil for frying
- 2 tablespoons raw sugar for sprinkling
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon for sprinkling
Sift the ﬂour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the egg yolk then pour in the milk. Whisk together to form a smooth batter. Try to make sure there are no lumpy bits.
Tip the egg white into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until it forms a thick white foam. It should be thick enough to form soft ﬂ oppy peaks if you lift the beater out.
Ask a grown-up to help you tip the egg white into the batter. Use a large kitchen spoon to stir them together, working from the middle of the bowl. Instead of stirring round and round, try to cut downwards through the mixture and then turn it over (this is called 'folding'). The batter should be smooth, thick and shiny.
Ask a grown-up to help you peel and core the apples (this can be tricky, but there are also special machines that do both tasks at the same time). Slice the apples into ½ cm rings – you should be able to get about 8 rings from each apple.
Dip 3 apple rings into the batter and use tongs to turn them so they are coated all over.
Ask a grown-up to heat the oil in a frying pan over a low–medium heat. When it is just hot, place the 3 apple rings in the oil. Ask a grown-up to do this for you and stand well back in case the oil spatters. Fry the fritters for 2 minutes on each side until the apple is soft and the fritters are golden.
Ask a grown-up to help you lift the fritters out of the pan and onto paper towel to drain, then lift them onto a warm serving plate. Repeat with the remaining apple rings.
Mix the sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle onto the hot fritters and serve them straight away.
Make around 16 fritters
