I don’t peel the apples…It gives a more “rustic” look to the fritters. Feels more homemade. Also, I don’t like to waste it!
Usually, when serving fritters, you should add powdered sugar on the top. I prefer to keep them more natural so you can taste better the apple!
My Venetian Carnival far from home.
Today is Fat Thursday. The last Thursday of Carnival. I never thought that one day I would live somewhere that doesn’t celebrate it…Today I am missing so much the carnival typical sweets, the dressing up and going out in the colorful “calli”(streets) of Venice. For me, Carnival was a sign that winter was almost over and spring was coming! So today I decided to find back the happy feeling of Carnival with these apple fritters! Baked in the oven, oil and butter free, they are not as heavy as the classical carnival food but still have that unmistakable taste of Venice!
- Wash your apples and cut them in quarters. Cut out the core of the apple. Slice each quarter in 3 or 4 pieces. Cover it up with the juice from the lemon.
- Preheat oven at 325F.
- In a bowl whisk the egg white with an electric hand mixer, add the sugar and the yolk, keep whisking. Add the milk, the flour, the grated lemon peel, and the yeast. Mix it all until you have a uniform mixture.
- Sink each apple slice in the batter and arrange them on baking paper.
- Bake for 20 minutes. Let them cool down. ENJOY!
