Pair this delectable dish with a cold Kristallweizen, a filtered wheat beer that offers a body viscous enough to complement the richness of the fritters, yet crisp and refreshing enough to gently cleanse the palate.
In a stand mixer, beat flour, beer, oil, egg yolks and a pinch of salt until smooth. Transfer to refrigerator and allow to rest for approx. 30 min.
Beat egg whites and sugar in a stand mixer until stiff and doubled in volume.
Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the batter.
Peel and core apples.Then, cut into slices one finger-width thick.
Dredge apple slices in batter and lightly shake off any excess.
In a large frying pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Fry apple fritters for approx. 1 – 2 min. per side or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and dust with confectioner’s sugar, if desired. Enjoy them while they’re hot!
