These were good but I had a problem with keeping enough batter on the apples. It is probably because this is my first attempt at fritters. I would recommend a softer variety apple too as when I tried it with a few granny smiths the apple just was not cooked well. Made for 'Zaar Alphabet Chef Tag Game 2008
