Apples are sliced into thin, bite-size pieces, then coated in a zesty lemon batter and pan-fried until golden.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- 2 large apples
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
In a large bowl, mix flour, salt and sugar. Pour in milk, a little at a time, stirring to make a smooth batter. Beat in eggs and lemon zest.
Core and peel apples, then cut in wedges. Cut each wedge crosswise into thin slices. Toss apples in batter to coat.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil and butter. Drop fritter mixture by spoonfuls into pan and cook, turning once, until golden brown. Plate and sprinkle with sugar. Serve warm.
