- 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
- 2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground allspice
- 2 1/2 cups vanilla-flavored soy yogurt
Combine maple syrup and cinnamon stick in medium saucepan. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; add bean. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Scrape down sides of pan. Let syrup cool completely.
Whisk first 7 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Whisk yogurt, eggs, and brandy in medium bowl to blend. Stir yogurt mixture into dry ingredients (batter will be very soft).
Pour oil into heavy large saucepan to depth of 1 1/2 inches. Attach deep-fry thermometer and heat oil to 350°F to 360°F. Line large rimmed baking sheet with several layers of paper towels. Frying 3 or 4 at a time, drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into oil and cook until deep golden brown, turning occasionally, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer fritters to paper towels to drain.
Sift powdered sugar over fritters. Spoon syrup into bowls. Arrange 3 fritters atop syrup in each.
Apple Cinnamon Bread
Besides being simple enough to whip up on a moments notice, as it bakes, this easy apple cinnamon bread puts off the kind of warming, buttery, spiced aromas that usher in all the fall feels. And given just how well a warm slice pairs with a cup of coffee, don&rsquot be surprised if you find yourself making a loaf of apple cinnamon bread on a weekly basis throughout the season. The rich quick bread is incredibly moist, thanks to the apple and sour cream, but the key to ensuring it&rsquos as tender as possible is to avoid over-mixing. In fact, once the final addition of dry ingredients has been added to the batter, it&rsquos helpful to finish incorporating everything together by hand, using a rubber spatula, rather than continuing to whip the batter with an electric mixer. We used Granny Smith apple in testing the recipe, but you can really use any apple variety you have on hand. Feel free to substitute the pecans called for walnuts, or leave the nuts out entirely.
