Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 medium green apples (Pippin or Granny Smith)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
  • 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Canola or vegetable oil, for frying
  • Lemon Curd Cream:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup jarred lemon curd

  • Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and sugar; set aside.
