Cranberry Orange Fritter

What you'll need



The day before prep begins, cover 10 oz. dried cranberries with orange juice and reserve in cooler.  The next day, drain cranberries and reserve for use in recipe.  This step is optional but will make plump your cranberries.

Prepare the donut mix according to manufacturer’s instructions.  Scale out 5 lb. dough and place on a floured bench.  Top with 10 oz. prepared cranberries and 8 oz. orange fruit bits.  Using a bench knife, begin to chop up the mixture, folding to mix, until the dough pieces are silver dollar sized.  Shape dough into a log, using more dusting flour as needed and slice 3 oz. portions, placing dough directly on frying screen.  Proof and fry according to manufacturer’s instructions and glaze while still warm.

Chef Tips

Fritters are best made with donut dough re-rolls.  Use your first roll for rings, your second roll for Bismarck’s, and your third roll for fritters.  Once dough has been rolled, knead together, let bench (covered) for 20 minutes, then proceed with shaping as desired.

Use a high protein or bread flour for dusting the bench regardless of product.  High protein flours are less likely to have lumps and will provide more even coverage on the bench.  This even coverage and high protein content will have less absorption by the dough, making it less likely to alter the recipe.
