Looking For Recipe

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recipe for gluten-free apple fritters? I've been searching and searching and cannot find one. I didn't think it would be so difficult. I had promised I'd bring apple fritters to Thanksgiving dinner and my brother-in-law has Celiac Disease and I'd like him to be able to eat the fritters. I also need a veggie recipe, but I'm sure I can find one of those easily. Thanks.

I don't have an apple fritter recipe, but someone earlier mentioned a doughnut recipe from www.gfutah.org that had turned out very well . . . maybe you could look up a "normal" fritter recipe, determine how it differs from a "normal" doughnut recipe, and then modify the gfutah recipe into an apple fritter recipe.

It's worth a try, anyway!

Good luck, and Way to Go! for caring enough to take the time to include your brother in law.

Actually, I just looked some up, and the recipe doesn't look like it would be too difficult to make it gluten free. It's more of a batter recipe than a dough recipe, which generally means it will modify better. I found this recipe on www.cdkitchen.com, but there are others out there:

Ingredients:

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup milk

1 egg

1 cup finely chopped apple

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted

Directions:

Sift together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Add milk and egg; beat until batter is smooth. Fold in chopped apple. Drop by teaspoonfuls into deep hot oil -- about 370F and at least 2 1/2 to 3 inches deep -- and fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, until nicely browned.

Drain well on paper towels then roll in confectioners' sugar while still warm. Serve as is or warm, with syrup, if desired.

To make it gluten free: Buy a gluten free flour mix at your health food store (Bob's Red Mill has one . . . there are also others that are available commercially.) If the mix doesn't contain xanthan gum or guar gum, you'll need to buy some of that too. For the 1 c. of flour the recipe calls for, use 1 c. gluten free flour mix and 1/2 tsp. of xanthan gum. (If the mix already contains xanthan gum, you probably won't have to add extra.) Follow the directions given in the recipe.

To make sure your fritters are truly gluten free:

1. Fry the fritters in clean oil, not oil that you've used before. If you've ever used the oil to fry gluten-containing things (anything with regular flour), the oil will have gluten in it that will get fried into your fritters.

2. Don't cook anything with regular flour while you are cooking the fritters. And once you've cooked them, cover them tightly and keep them someplace where no bread crumbs or flour dust will land on them.

3. Clean your bowls/knives/pans/other utensils VERY THOROUGHLY before you make the fritters, just to make sure that you won't have any problems with cross contamination.

Have fun! And if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
