|I was toying wround with the old "apple slices in batter" theme and tried out to grate the apples and mix them in the dough for a different experience.
500 grams of low fat quark,
four large eggs,
100 grams wheat flour,
150 grams sugar,
lots of clarified butter for deep frying.
Special utensils needed:
a deep pan, small pot or a deep frier, lots of kitchen tissue.
grate the apple and prepare a dough from the other ingredients:
Heat the clarified butter to around 180 degrees celsius (PRO TIP: the ideal temperature can be checked with a wooden spoon. Just dip the dry spoon handle into the hot oil - when small bubbles form on the handle, it's perfik!) and deep fry tablespoon-sized portions of the dough in it:
This should only take a few seconds, when the crust starts to get brown, turn them over:
When the first portion is done, dry them on kitchen paper, wait a few moments for the butter to regain temperature, then repeat until the whole dough is used. Sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar and serve while still warm, best with some custard or vanilla sauce:
