Apple fritters

These little fruity gems are like doughnuts, but a heck of a lot healthier. Ok, so they're fried, but inside there's juicy, caramelised apple - and the ginger beer batter gives them a lovely fiery kick.

It's a great way to get little people to eat fruit (though not one for everyday) and you can whip them up in minutes, meaning they're a quick, yummy alternative to apple pie or apple crumble.

Serves 4


2 large apples

75g self-raising flour

1/3 can ginger beer (110ml)


Put a large saucepan over a medium heat and pour in enough sunflower or vegetable oil to go around 1-2cm up the side. Let this heat up for 10-15 minutes – you can check it’s hot enough by dropping in a crumb of bread and waiting for it to sizzle.

Peel and core the apples and slice them top to bottom, around half a centimetre thick.

Make the batter by mixing the flour and ginger beer and whisking until there are no lumps.

Drop each apple piece in the batter and fry them in the oil, in batches, for a couple of minutes on each side. Serve hot, with ice-cream, sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon.
