Chocolate is so cliche. This sounds like THE PERFECT dessert to keep you and your honey warm on valentine’s day.
It’s from the mastermind of Mario Batali himself, so it should be amazing.
The Macallan Apple Fritters
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup whole milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1/4 cup The Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Years Old whisky, plus 2 oz for topping
- 8 cups extra-virgin olive oil, for deep-frying
- 6 green apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and sliced into ½-inch-thick rounds
- 2 cups vanilla gelato
- Cinnamon, for dusting
(They forgot to include two glasses for drinking!)
Here’s what you do:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Slowly add the flour, about 3 tablespoons at a time, whisking until incorporated. Stir in the sugar and The Macallan. Allow the batter to stand for 10 minutes.
In a large deep pot, heat the olive oil to 375° F. Working in batches of 3 or 4 dip each apple slice into the batter, add to the hot oil, and cook until golden brown. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Place 5 fritters on each of four plates, in an overlapping circle. Place a scoop of gelato in the center, sprinkle with cinnamon, add a tablespoon of The Macallan over the gelato and serve.Tweet this!
