Tried these on my first trip to San Francisco and been wanting to make them ever since. It’s like deep fried apple pie with cinnamon and maple glaze in a bun, what’s not to love!

To make the fritters, put the flour, caster sugar and yeast in a large bowl, make a well in the centre.
Add the milk, eggs and butter together with 50 ml of the water. With your hands combine until you have a dough.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Form the dough into a smooth ball and place back into the bowl. Cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm dark place for around an hour or until doubled in size.
Meanwhile, in a medium sized pot, heat the butter, apples, cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice, allow to cook over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until the apples become tender.
When the dough has risen, punch it down and roll into a rectangular shape. Spread over the apple filling and then roll up like a swiss roll. Divide into 12 equal pieces and shape into balls. Transfer onto a floured baking sheet. Cover with a damp tea towel and allow to rise for another 30 minutes.
In a small bowl whisk together the icing sugar and maple syrup until combined.
Fill a medium sized pan with sunflower oil and heat to 180c. Use a spatula to drop the fritters into the oil, a few at a time and fry until golden.
Remove to a kitchen paper lined plate and continue frying until they are all done. When you’re ready to serve, dip one side of each fritter in the glaze and let drain on a cooling rack.
