Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Tools
Recipe (Original recipe here)
3 ripe peaches
1 apple (added by my wife after the fact)
1.5 cups flour
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup cold water
1.5 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp cinnamon paste
4 egg whites
Vegetable oil (enough to cover–have a whole bottle handy)
For coating the fried batter:
Step 2: Make Cinnamon Paste
Step 3: Mix the Batter
Step 4: Preparing the Fruit
To easily peel the peaches make a slit cross ways along the bottom of the peaches. Then boil the peaches for about 30-60 seconds. Place the peaches immediately in a bath of ice water. The skin should slide right off. I had better luck with the white peach I used than the regular ones. I would suggest using freestone peaches.
Peel and slice your banana.
Core and slice up your apple.
Step 5: Fold in Egg Whites
Mix about 1/4th of the eggs into the batter. Then fold in the rest of the eggs into the batter. If you do not know how to fold check out this Youtube video here.
Step 6: Frying Your Fruit
Pour enough oil to cover your fruit when you put it in and turn the heat up to 350°. While the oil is heating you can drop some of the fruit into the batter. This will let it get a good coating.
Test the oil by dropping in a tiny portion of the batter. Once the batter browns you can begin adding the batter covered fruit. Let them fry for a little less that a minute. Make sure you flip the fruit with the metal spoon so all sides get browned.
Once it is done frying place it on a paper towel and cover with powdered sugar.
Step 7: Eat!
