Homemade Polish Apple Fritters

Even though we try to eat healthy most of the time, it’s important to  treat ourselves to something special occasionally!  These Homemade Polish Apple Fritters are a favorite in our house.  The crunchy puffed fried batter creates the perfect contrast with the soft sweet tart of the apple.

Homemade Polish Apple Fritters

This recipe is a translation and adaption of a Polish recipe that Kryz remembers enjoying growing up.  While kids in Poland would often enjoy these Apple Fritters as a special treat, you can also make into a full meal.  We like to prepare these for Sunday evening dinner, a meal we typically reserve for something fun and unique – a tradition adopted from Emily’s family.

I hope you find a special time with your family to make these delicious treats – Homemade Polish Apple Fritters.

Ingredients –

3 eggs, separated

1/2 cup sugar

2 1/2 tablespoons half and half

1 cup flour

1 T cornstarch

4 medium granny smith apples

1-2 cups frying oil (canola, vegetable, etc.)

powdered sugar for serving

1.  Beat egg yolks with sugar and cream until combined.  In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until very stiff.  Fold egg whites into cream mixture. Sift together flour and cornstarch. Add to wet mixture, stirring until just combined.

Slice apples perpendicular to the core to create rings

2.  Peel and core apples.  Cut into 1/4″ thick rings by slicing perpendicular to the core.

3.  Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat.  Add enough oil to cover pan in 1/2″ of oil.  Dip apple rings in batter until coated and drop into oil.

Frying apple deliciousness!

4.  Fry for 4-5 or until bottom is golden brown.  Flip to other side and continue frying for another 2-3 minutes or until second side is also golden brown.  Place on paper towels to drain.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!

5.  Arrange fritters on plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Enjoy immediately!
