Preparation in advance:
Mix the yeast (and sugar) with the lukewarm milk and let rest for 10 minutes.
Sift the flour in a bowl. Add the yeast mixture and stir well. Let rise for about an hour on a warm spot (30°C) and sprinkle the salt over. Stir carefull.
How to prepare:
Heat the oil to ± 180°C/360°F. Peel the apples (shortly before frying to prevent from getting brown) and remove the core with an apple corer. Cut the apples in 1 cm thick slices so you get a hole in the middle and sprinkle with little cinnamon . Dip the apple slices completely in the batter, drain a little and fry the apple fritters golden brown . Drain on kitchen paper. Serve with icing sugar .
If you're making oldyears eve fritters too, make them first: by baking lots of apple fritters the oil will get very dirty.
Another batter you can use you'll find here, without using the spices.
