Apple Puffs, A Rumford Complete Cookbook Recipe

Apple-Puffs-1

Add a little tartness and crunch to your ice cream dessert! These apple puffs from the Rumford Complete Cookbook are a great addition to a nice bowl of vanilla ice cream. The apple puffs have a slight crunchy outside with the inside a cake texture with bits of tender apples inside. When pairing it with ice cream, I also drizzled caramel on top to complete the taste. The apple puffs recipe is on page 97 of the Rumford Complete Cookbook!

Here is my version of the recipe with some modifications for the puffs to take shape.

Apple Puffs
Ingredients: 
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 apples, peeled, and chopped
1 egg
1 tsp Rumford Baking Powder
1 cup milk
Pinch of salt

Directions:
Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium size mixing bowl. Add the sugar and chopped apples. Add the egg and milk and mix to a rather stiff batter. Drop spoonfuls of batter into a hot deep fryer and cook until the puffs are golden brown. Remove and drain puffs on a paper towel on a plate. Serve warm with ice cream.

I prepared these apple puffs and enjoyed with vanilla ice cream drizzled with my favorite caramel sauce to top it off. So delicious!!
