In The Netherlands, the Dutch celebrate St. Nichols Day, which is their equivalent of Christmas. There are many awesome Dutch recipes out there, but unfortunately most of them involve some kind of meat or dairy. However, these tasty little apple fritters are totally vegan and every bite is delicious.
Make sure to eat immediately after cooking. They don’t make very nice left overs!
First, make your batter by whisking the cold beer or cider into the gram flour. Make sure your liquid is cold, that makes a thicker batter. Set your apple rings near the batter and line a plate with paper towels. Set plate near your pan with frying oil. Heat the oil on med/high heat until its ready for deep frying. Using tongs, dip one of the apple rings into the batter and place in the oil. Cook until the batter has turned golden brown on all sides and then place on the plate with the paper towels. Do this again until all of the apple slices are used up.
When ready to serve, garnish by dusting the beignets with the cinnamon sugar (mixed together). Serve with lemon wedges. Enjoy!
