Embrace fall baking fun with these mouthwatering Lazy Apple Fritters, enhanced with OG Ghee! This delicious recipe comes to us courtesy of @sancianicole, making it the perfect way to savor your autumn, one sweet bite at a time.
Mise en Place:
For the Filling:
- Apples - 2 peeled and chopped into small pieces
- OG Ghee - 2 tbsp
- Cinnamon - 1 tsp
- White Sugar - 1 tsp
- Salt (to taste)
For the Dough:
- Milk - 1 cup
- Yeast - 2 tsp
- All-purpose flour - 2 cups
- Sugar - 3 tbsp
- Eggs - 2
- OG Ghee - 1/4 cup - softened
- Salt - 1 tsp
For the Glaze:
- Icing sugar
- Water (to reach the desired consistency)
- Peel and chop the apples.
- Heat OG Ghee in a pot.
- Add the chopped apples, sprinkle with cinnamon and white sugar, and stir together.
- Cook until tender, then remove from heat.
- In a large bowl (or using a stand mixer with a dough hook), pour in the milk and sprinkle with the yeast. Allow it to sit until it gets foamy.
- Add flour along with the sugar, eggs, softened OG Ghee, and salt. Stir until you have a sticky dough.
- Gradually add more flour and knead until the dough becomes smooth and elastic, though it should still be tacky. The flour will absorb some liquid as it rests.
- Cover the dough and let it rise for about an hour and a half, or until it doubles in size.
- Roll or pat the dough out to about 1/2-inch thickness and cut into 2-inch rounds.
- Once the dough has risen and the filling has cooled, roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick.
Sprinkle the cooked apple filling evenly over the entire surface of the dough.
Roll the dough, pinching the seam together, and tucking apples inside as much as possible.
- Heat about two inches of oil in a heavy, shallow pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. The oil should be hot but not smoking; it should sizzle when a scrap of bread or dough is dipped in. If you have a thermometer, it should read about 350°F.
- Cook the doughnuts in batches, without crowding the pot. Turn them with a slotted spoon or tongs for 2-3 minutes or until they turn deep golden.
Transfer the cooked fritters to a paper towel-lined plate.
- Mix icing sugar and water until you reach the desired consistency (not too runny and not too thick).
- Dip each fritter into the prepared glaze.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or sip alongside your coffee for a delightful treat.
