With so much on our plate –from yoga, to assignments and work, it’s often difficult to fill it with something tasty! I mean, do we really have time for three layer cakes, or struggling to make the perfect creme brulee? The answer to that would probably be a blunt NO. But I, much like you, still prefer a home-made treat and not to mention the heavenly scent of fresh baked goods.
To get the best of both worlds (a recipe that’s quick enough to fit a packed schedule, but no less delicious), try The Busy Girl’s Apple Pie. These fritters are coated in a crisp outer layer, and are great served with a big scoop of vanilla or praline ice cream! They taste so good you can hardly tell the difference.
But you be the judge! This is what you’ll need to try it:
1/2 cup of flour
1 pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of sugar
4 teaspoons of cinnamon
80 ml of milk
1 egg, separated
3 apples (any kind)
To start, sift all the dry ingredients (the flour, cinnamon, salt, and the sugar) in a bowl. Then add the egg yolk along with half the milk and keep stirring until it’s turned into a smooth paste –work those biceps! Add the rest of the milk and stir until incorporated, and stick it in into the fridge for 30-40 minutes.
This doesn’t mean you get a break though! In the meantime, peel and core your apples, and cut them into 1/4 inch thick slices. Beat the egg white until it has a hard consistency(similar to whipped cream), and fold this into the batter that has been taken out of the fridge. Dip each slice into the mix and drip off any excess, placing them into a pan of hot oil. Leave them here to fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown on each side. When ready, shake off any excess oil and place the slices on a paper towel.
Now take out that tub of ice cream, and enjoy!
