Vegan Apple Beignets Inspired from the Dutch cuisine
If you're looking for a light and airy dessert, look no further than these vegan apple beignets. They are perfect for Fall and Winter months. These little bites will make your mouth water with the first bite of cinnamon-sugar crusted doughnut goodness!
- 3 large sweet apples (I used Gala apples)
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup carbonated water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Frying oil (I used canola oil, but you can also use vegetable or sunflower oil)
Make the batter by mixing the flour, baking powder, salt, and carbonated water. It should have a thicker consistency. If it is too runny, add a little bit of flour. Mix until smooth.
Peel and core the apples, then slice them as thick as you like.
Heat up the oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Dip your apple slices through the batter and let the excess fall off the apple slice.
Once your oil has reached 350 degrees, you fry each apple slice until golden brown. Circa 3-5 minutes.
Make your cinnamon sugar by mixing the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Dip the fried apple beignets in the cinnamon sugar and serve warm.
