Chef John's Apple Fritters
November 22, 2016

Chef John is right on about cooking up the apples before hand; they were delicious and didn't make the batter too wet like can happen sometimes. I will be incorporating this step into other apple recipes like apple blondies. As for the rest of the fritter, well, it was an utter disaster. they were too airy so that I could barely flip them without them falling apart. So, I added more flour which helped a little but they were still too airy and the flavor was dulled a bit because of it. I have to blame that on the baking powder. For some reason the listed amount was too much. Does it have to do with altitude? (I'm in a high altitude area) I don't know, but it never effected any of my other recipes this way. Regardless, I love apple fritters so, I will try again with less baking powder next time. My husband, the guinea pig, said the flavor was good and we will salvage the crispy bits to eat with vanilla ice cream. :0)
