Let’s Get Fall Cookin’!
I have mentioned Autumn desserts, but recently combing through the different lists I have found a gem. Another delicious apple recipe you can't help but think, "Oh, that looks amazing." Fireball. Apple. Fritters.
Have you ever had the craving for apples, then suddenly get a hankering for some Fireball Whiskey? Well, luckily there exists a world of culinary science where such lines are not only crossed, but are blurred together to create some new tasty treats. And with that, I present to you the recipe for Fireball Apple Fritters.
1 cup (All-Purpose) Flour
3/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Fireball Whiskey (can't be Fireball Apple Fritters without it)
1 Large Egg (or two small eggs)
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon (Kosher) Salt
Vegetable Oil (for frying, the amount depends on size of skillet you use)
4 Apples (your choice of brand, preferably crunchy like Pink Lady or Honey Crisp)
2 cup Cinnamon-Sugar (mix)
Caramel (for dipping, the amount depends on if you want caramel dip or not)
In a bowl, whisk the flour, milk, Fireball, egg(s), baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt all together.
Pour 1 inch of vegetable oil into a skillet over medium-high heat.
Slice your apples into 1/4 inch thick pieces and use a small tool (like a teaspoon) to clean out the centers (try to clear the core).
After the oil is hot, use tongs (or similar tool) to dip the apples rings into the mixture bowl then dip the flat-side of the apple into the hot oil. When the edges are LIGHTLY GOLDEN (not much more than that otherwise you'll ruin the apple ring) flip the soon-to-be-apple-fritter over to get the other side. You'll only need about a minute on each side to get lightly golden.
Take the cooked apple rings and set on a paper towel to drain the excess grease.
Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mix over the rings.
At this point you can dip the Fireball Apple Fritters into some (warm) caramel, but that is entirely up to you.
There you have it, Fireball Apple Fritters and the easy recipe to create them. If you want to see the recipe with pictures, and other recipes as well, then click here.
