I like fruit and I like frying things. I decided to combine the two and see what happened.

Metal Spoon

Recipe (Original recipe here)
3 ripe peaches

1.5 cups flour
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup cold water

2 Tbsp cinnamon paste
4 egg whites
Vegetable oil (enough to cover–have a whole bottle handy)

For coating the fried batter:
Powdered sugar

Step 2: Make cinnamon paste

The original recipe calls for brandy. I decided I wanted a cinnamon flavor to mine. Make the paste by combining 1 tbsp. of cinnamon and 1 tbsp. of honey in a small bowl. Mix the two well.

Step 3: Mix the batter

Combine the salt, flour, and egg yolks in a mixing bowl and mix on low. If you don't know how to separate the yolks from the white of the egg I use the method in this video. Add the water slowly as you mix. Then put the batter in another bowl and let it rest for two hours. I put mine in the refrigerator to rest. Make sure you cover it.

Step 4: Preparing the fruit

While the batter is resting you can get your fruit ready.

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

Now that your batter has rested you can add the egg whites. You will put two egg whites in the mixer and mix on high until you have high peaks. For how to do that check out this Youtube video.

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.
