1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 - 1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cup sourdough starter

2 cups oil for frying

 

 

Peel and core apples. Dice and place into a mixing bowl. Add the cinnamon, sugar and baking soda, stir to combine. Pour the sourdough starter over the apples, stir and allow to sit for 30 minutes. While the apple fritter dough is resting heat 2 cups of oil to 350 degrees for frying.

Turn over and fry the other side until golden.  Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. When they are cool enough to touch sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Serve

    This is a great recipe. I dint usually accumulate a lot of sourdough starter but I wanted to make fritters and knew I could scale up my sour. I made a double batch of this and my wife and kids loved it. This is a simple recipe compared to others that require you to make an enriched dough and work with scant quantities of a bunch of ingredients.

    I coated my fritters with a glaze made from 1 1/2 C powdered sugar, 1/4 C + 3 Tbsp milk.

  2. Wow, thanks I’m glad you liked it!

    Are you supposed to use fed sourdough starter or the discard? If discard, does it come straight from the refrigerator or should it be allowed to reach room temperature first?

  4. Discard sourdough only. If it is refrigerated you must bring it to room temperature before using. Also, I would feed it and wait 3 to 4 hours before using, since it has not been activated like it would be if it were sitting out at room temperature.
