  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 3/4 cup club soda
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter

To the liquid add the sugar, remaining cinnamon, 1/2 cup of beer, club soda and melted butter. Whisk in the eggs. Sift the flours and baking soda into a large bowl. Whisk in the liquid ingredients and let the batter rest for 30 minutes. Adjust thickness.

  • Stir the apples into the batter. Using and ice cream server, scoop the batter, in batches, into the fryer and cook until golden and fluffy. Remove the fritters from the fryer to a serving platter.

Lower the heat and cook until the sauce turns deep amber in color, about 10 minutes. Drizzle the caramel over the fritters, sprinkle with salt, and serve with slice of Cheddar.
