Make Christmas extra special with these apple pie fritters made with the new baileysofficial Apple Pie Liqueur flavoured liqueur – out just in time for Christmas!
.
Is it weird to say that these are probably going to be part of my Christmas tradition they’re so delicious? Apple fritters are like knobbly, chunky donuts full of spiced apples. We don’t get them much in Australia although I used to see these donuts a lot in America.
.
I made these a bit more special for Christmas and made with a spiced, butter enriched brioche dough and the pièce de résistance is the glaze made using baileysofficial Apple Pie and it is honestly the best addition to glaze EVER. Merry Christmas ya beautiful animals! Recipe is below, make it, love it and enjoy!

  1. Apple Pie Donut Fritters
    Makes 6 large fritters
    Apple filling
    300g apples
    1⁄3 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla paste
    1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Brioche dough
    20g flour
    1⁄2 cup water
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon salt
    230g bread flour plus 3-4 tablespoons extra for rolling
    2 teaspoons instant dried yeast
    25g caster sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    30g +60g butter, softened

    Glaze
    1.5 cups/230g icing sugar
    3 tablespoons @baileysofficial Apple Pie Liqueur
    1-2 tablespoons water

    1 First make the apple filling. Peel, core and chop the apples into 1cm cubes. Place in a saucepan and heat on medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Add the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and simmer until the apples release their juice and are softened. Cool and strain well (save the syrup for cocktails).
    2 Add the 20g or flour and water in a small saucepan and heat to 65C/149F and whisk until you get a smooth, creamy mixture. Remove from heat and whisk in the egg and salt.
    3 In a mixer bowl whisk the flour, yeast, sugar and cinnamon. Pour in the mixture from the saucepan and mix until shaggy. Add the 30g of butter and knead on low speed for 5 minutes. Add the remaining 60g of butter and knead on medium speed until the dough pulls away from the edge and is no longer sticky. It should be pliable and easy to handle.
    4 Place in a large bowl and cover allow to rise til 2-3 times its size in a warm area for around an hour. Punch down the dough and roll out to a large rectangle. Spread apples over half of the dough and fold over and chop up into squares with a sharp knife.
    5 Line a large baking tray with parchment. Roll this mixture into a log with the extra flour and shape into balls and flatten slightly. Make sure that the apples are tucked inside the dough bits and place on the tray. Allow to rise for 20 minutes until puffy.
    6 Heat 1 litre of oil in a cast iron pot or a deep fryer. When it reaches 180C place donuts in 2 at a time so as not to overcrowd the pan and make the oil temperature drop. Gently wash the hot oil over the exposed top with a large spoon, this

  2. Gently wash the hot oil over the exposed top with a large spoon, this makes them easier to cook on the other side. Cook for 2 minutes on each side. Place on paper towels to drain.
    7 Sift the icing sugar and mix with the @baileysofficial Apple Pie Liqueur and water until you get a dippable glaze. Dip one side of the fritters in the glaze and serve. These are wonderful served warm and are best eaten on the day that you make them (but freeze well).
