Fried cakes of apple goodness.


1 cup unsalted matzo meal
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil plus oil for frying
1/2 cup water
3 peeled Granny Smith apples, diced
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch ground cloves
Honey and walnuts (optional)


  1. Beat matzo meal, eggs, salt, 2 tablespoons of oil and water together in a medium bowl with a spoon to form a batter. Carefully stir in apples, cinnamon, cloves and sugar.
  2. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a heavy frying pan to 325F. Drop batter by the spoonful or small ice-cream scoop, about 5 at a time, into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on each side. Serve warm. Drizzle a little honey and walnuts over fritters just before serving.
