Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 15 min
Ready in 25 min
pinch of salt
30 grams apple syrup
1/2 tablespoon baking soda
140 grams of rice flour
110 grams of rice milk
The procedure is very simple: you start by carefully washing an apple and peeling it with a knife. With the lever-core you have to remove the central part of the fruit, taking care not to get hurt. The apple must then be cut into thin slices because in this way the apple slices will cook faster without burning.
At this point, the slices of the fruit should be placed in a large enough bowl, and then you pour lemon juice over it and mix everything, making sure that the apple slices are completely covered with lemon juice so as not to blacken them. The bowl with apple slices is put aside for a few minutes and in the meantime, efforts are made to prepare the batter.
The batter is prepared by placing an egg in a bowl and adding a pinch of salt, to which will be added the apple syrup, mixed with honey or rice syrup. Subsequently, you will have to assemble these ingredients with the help of the whips until you get a frothy and light mixture. To this, we will add the lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.
Then gradually add the rice flour and rice milk, stirring the mixture with the help of the whisk until obtaining a dough that must be smooth and without lumps. It is very important that the batter is soft and fluffy and has no lumps because then you have to dip it into the apple slices that we have previously prepared.
Preparation 2 (Baked apple fritters)
When the batter is ready and well mixed, take the apple slices that had been macerated in the lemon and dry them with paper towels, because otherwise, the batter will not stick well on the apple slices wet previously with lemon.
Gently lift the apple slices one at a time and dip them in the batter you previously prepared. Place the mixed apple slices, slightly apart from each other, on a baking sheet that you previously covered with parchment paper.
Cook the apple fritters in a static preheated oven at 170 ° for 15/20 minutes. Obviously cooking times may vary depending on your oven. When the pancakes appear golden in color, the apple pancakes will certainly be ready. Once cooked, remove them from the oven, put them on a plate and sprinkle them with icing sugar at will to decorate them in a wonderful way.
These baked apple fritters are an ancient recipe passed down for generations because they are homemade and with genuine ingredients. They are excellent both hot and at room temperature, for breakfast but also for a snack. Baked apple fritters are also ideal for those who are gluten intolerant because they are not made with wheat flour and are very light because they are not fried. For the fried version, for the sweet tooth, just fry them one at a time in abundant rice oil for those who are allergic to nickel or in abundant extra virgin olive oil or in any other type of oil for those who are not.
