In Switzerland we have a series of cookery books called Betty Bossi. Betty Bossi does not exist, but if she did her family would have a cake for every day of the year. Betty Bossi also makes baking utensils and sells them with success. Her latest development is a form for baking apple fritters. The trouble with fritters is that the kitchen gets full of oily smells and the preparaton can get a bit messy. Here is how Betty Bossi does it. First of all you have to have the special form for baking. I ordered one a couple of weeks ago and now it has arrived. Here are the ingredients for the apple rings (all in metric):
1 3/3 dl milk
2 Tablespoons of butter, to be melted and cooled off
1 egg yellow
70 grammes Flour
A pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
1 small spoon backing powder
1 egg white - stiffly beaten
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar (cinnamon powder mixed with sugar)
Here are the ingredients surrounding the form I got.
The mixture is quite thick. I then leave it for 30 minutes to settle. I then take my apples, peel them, core them and cut them in rings about 8 mm thick.
Then I pour enough of the cake mixture into each ring form to cover the apple rings until it is used up.
I then put the mixture in the cake form in the over preheated to 200° C and leave them to bake for 20 minutes.
