Apple fritters are irresistible snacks made for the most colourful period of the year: Carnival! They will appeal to both children and adults because they are made with thickly sliced juicy apples and a covering of crisp batter. You can replace the brandy with another spirit or, if you are making these fritters for your children, use orange juice! They are quite delicious, sweet, aromatic, and full of flavour, excellent for a party amongst friends with a carnival theme … and more! They are very simple to make, and inexpensive too because they use only simple ingredients.

Place the egg yolks in a bowl with two tablespoons of sugar, setting aside the two egg whites. Beat the egg yolks and sugar with a whisk, add the warm melted butter, sift in the flour and the yeast, and then add the milk until you have a smooth but thick batter. Beat the egg whites until stiff, then fold into the batter evenly and let it rest for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and core the apples, and cut into 1 cm thick slices. Place them in a shallow bowl, sprinkle with the remaining sugar and drizzle with brandy. Heat the oil, dip the apple slices in the batter with a wooden skewer and fry in the hot oil a few at a time. Brown them on both sides, drain on absorbent paper and, once cool, sprinkle with icing sugar.
