apple fritters

I'm a great fan of Anna Olson the pastry chef
so here I am trying my hands on one of her creations!
I chose this recipe as it doesn't use the oven
my oven broke down.. :(
what a perfect timing!

Anna divides her recipe into the following portions for easy making

 Preparing the apple
In a small mixing bowl
peel 2 tart apples, any type of your favorite ones and grate coarsely 
mix it with 1 tsp lemon zest + 2 Tbsp lemon juice + 3 Tbsp sugar and set aside

Preparing the sour cream base
In a big mixing bowl
mix 2/3 cups sour cream + 1/2 cup sugar + 2 egg yolks and stir
then add the above apple mixture and whisk together 

Preparing the flour
on a parchment paper or tray sift the following ingredients:
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour + 1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt + 1 tsp cinnamon + 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preparing the batter
add the flour into the sour cream base and mix well
then add 2 1/2 Tbsp melted butter and mix well

Preparing the apple fritters
in a separate mixing bowl whisk 2 egg whites until it becomes white
then add 2 Tbsp sugar and continue whisking until the whites barely becomes soft peaks
then add this into the batter and mix well using a spatula
scoop the batter with an ice cream scoop and deep fry until golden brown
when it has cooled down sprinkle icing sugar on top of the fritters


It was a sweet success!
Thanks Anna :)
