These deep-fried apple fritters are unlike anything else. With a crunchy, flavourful coating and a sweet apple filling, you won’t be able to stop yourself from going back for seconds when it comes to these.

  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 cup soda water, chilled
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
