We like to make these appelbeignets around Christmas time, but are tasty of course any time of year. They are best eaten when warm.


  • 4 cups sifted flour
  • 4 cups Heineken Pilsner beer,at room temperature
  • 10 tart apples
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cinnamon
  • powdered sugar
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Sift the flour into a large stainless steel bowl, slowly pour in the beer, in a well you have made in the center of the flour. Stir together gently and smooth. DO NOT BEAT OR OVERMIX. Set the batter aside at room temperature for 3 to 4 hours before using. When ready to make the fritters, peel and core the apples, cut them crosswise into thick rounds (about 1/2 inch thick). Dredge through the sugar and cinnamon, which have been mixed together, coating both sides evenly. Using tongs, immerse each apple slice in the batter, fry 3 or 4 at a time in hot vegetable oil at 350ºF, turning occasionally until golden. Transfer to a paper towel lined baking pan in a warm oven until all fritters are fried. Arrange the fritters on a platter and sprinle lightly with powdered sugar.
