Apple Fritters - Fritelle di Mete

20 minutes preparation + 5 minutes cooking


3 ½ozall-purpose flour
1 oz sugar
1 tablespoon Extra Vergin Olive Oil 
4 apples
lemon juice
confectioners sugar


Put flour, 2 egg yolk, rum, oil and sugar in a bowl and whisk all together. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water if the dough results a bit dry.
Just at the end add 2 egg whites whipped to firm peaks.
For best results, let the batter rest at least 30 min before use.
In the meanwhile peel the apples, core them and cut them cross-wise in slices about 0.2 inches thick and marinate them in lemon juice for 5 minutes.
In a saucepan heat enough oil to deep fry the slices then put them into the batter, fry them and finally drain them on a sheet of absorbent kitchen paper. Be sure do not cook in oil that is too hot or too cold.
Serve hot dusted with powdered sugar.
Various types of fruit may be fried in the same way: pears, bananas, apricots, etc..
