Apple Fritters

Thursday, December 15, 2011

About 5 or so years ago someone (my Mom) gave me a diabetic cookbook for my birthday. My first thought was lame (sorry Mom love you). I put it away in the cupboard and it has been collecting dust ever since.

Well since my Dr. put my on a pretty strict low carb diet to help control my blood sugars during pregnancy I decided to just peak through my old dusty cookbook. I found a ton of GEMS, including this delicious apple fritter recipe! Since I am a huge fan of apple treats/desserts (like this recipe) I decided to give this a shot...no diabetic pun intended. Haha I crack myself up.

What you will need:
  • 2 medium apples
  • 2/3 cup of all- purpose or wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar (plus extra for sprinkling on top)
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 milk
  • 1 teaspoon of shortening or oil for deep frying

Directions:

  • Core apples and cut into rings. In a medium bowl combine flour, 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar, lemon peel and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl combine egg, milk and 1 teaspoon of cooking oil. Add the egg mixture to flour mixture and blend together.
  • Dip apples rings into batter. Drain off excess. Fry fritters, 3 at a time in a hot pan with shorting or frying oil. Fry for about 2 minutes each side, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar.




I used my nifty little tea infuser to get the perfect amount of powdered sugar "sprinkle" onto each fritter.


SO delicious! A perfect little Christmas-y treat! I take back what I said about my diabetic cookbook being lame :)

Are you kidding me. These are very UNLAME! (And you crack me up, too. I am a very punny person. Ha! See?)

Just so happens my hubby's Dr. put him on the same diet. No. He's not pregnant. ;) He is however apparently getting too close to the diabetic borderline. (His dad is already there and on dialysis. :( My uncle...obviously NOOOO blood relation to my husband...ewe...was diabetic. So...this is a pretty big deal in our house right now.) My hub has already lost 5 or 6 lbs. in 3 weeks of simply cutting his carbs really low.

This looks so good. We must try it! Thanks for sharing your not-lame recipe. Haha. You should do that again. ;)

Paula said...

I've been making these this wk too. But I make a thin pancake batter w/ a lil sugar and cinnamon and bake? it off in the pan (like you would a pancake, til golden brown and the wet is cooked off) - topped off w/ a homemade glaze (pwdr sugar, milk and cinnamon).

Becky said...

These sound wonderful !! And a perfect treat for my Dad since he loves sweets(and my Mom who trying to make him stick to his low carb diet !!)Do you know the nutritional value of these ? Like how many carbs per serving ? I LOVE your blog by the way !

Unknown said...

would you be able to sub gf flour for the all purpose? and also maybe almond milk instead of regular?

Kaitlyn Davila said...

Hi! These look absolutely delicious. I bought apples the other day and want to make these. and have the chance to now. I was wondering if the baking powder is crucial? I don't have any at home and don't want to run to the store ha
