Apple donuts (Öpfuchüechli) 🇨🇭

Happy New Year and welcome to the first episode of Swiss Food Discovery in 2020. Today, I’m presenting a dish typical to the Emmental valley in the Canton of Bern. It’s a delicious apple donut, crisp on the outside and tender inside. A dessert worthy for a farmer’s fest.

Prepare a batter by mixing 150 ml milk with 1 tsp vanilla extract, 50 g butter and 1 egg yolk. Add 70 g flour mixed with 1 tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt. Carefully fold in a stiff egg white.

Peel 3-4 apples and cut them into 1 cm thick slices. Remove the seeds and then turn the apple rings in the batter. Fry in butter, a couple of minutes on each side, deep fry in vegetable oil until golden or bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 180°C. Dust with cinnamon and powdered sugar.

Serve with vanilla custard, dried apple rings, hazelnut croquant and dried mallow blossom.

The other dishes this week are presented by Silvie from Citronelle and Cardamome and Tamara from Cakes, Cookies and more.
