Beer & cardamom apple fritters from Jamie Oliver!

  • 8 cardamom pods
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 30 g cornflour
  • ½ heaped teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 heaped tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium free-range egg yolks
  • 330 ml can of chilled lager
  • 3 large Royal Gala apples, (about 500g)
  • 1.5 litres vegetable oil , for frying


1. Crush the cardamom pods, pull out the seeds
2.  Finely grind in a pestle and mortar (if that doesn’t work, use a coffee grinder!)
3. Mix the flour in a bowl with the cornflour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon of caster sugar, 1 big pinch of sea salt, half the cardamom and half the ground cinnamon.
4. Add the egg yolks and whisk, pouring in the lager as you go, until you have a smooth, thick batter; cover and set aside to rest.
5. Peel and core the apples, before cutting them into ½-centimetre thick slices, then set aside in a bowl of water until needed.
6. Mix the remaining 5 tablespoons of caster sugar with the rest of the cardamom and cinnamon, and 1 pinch of salt.
7.Heat the oil in a wide, deep, heavy-based pan (no more than half full), to 190ºC/375ºF (use a thermometer, or drop in a piece of bread: it should turn golden in about 35 seconds), or use a deep-fat fryer.
8. Dunk the apple slices in the batter and fry, in batches, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until crisp and a rich brown colour, turning regularly.
9. Drain on a rack with kitchen paper underneath to catch the drips.
10. Cool briefly, then toss in the spiced sugar.
