Traditional French fritters get a modern twist from cardamom, bourbon, and chai.

Ingredients
Cardamom Anglaise
2 Tbsp white sugar
3 egg yolks
1/8 tsp salt
½ cup 35% cream
½ cup whole milk
1 Tbsp ground green cardamom

Roasted Apple Beignets
4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 cup all purpose flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
2/3 cup whole milk
1 egg yolk
1 Tbsp melted unsalted butter
2 egg whites

Bourbon Ice Cream
9 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
¼ cup water
2 cups 35% cream
2 oz woodford reserve bourbon

Method
Cardamom Anglaise
1.  Whisk together sugar, egg yolks and salt in a small bowl.
2.  In a medium sized pot, bring cream, milk and cardamom to a simmer. Slowly pour cream into the egg yolk mixture, whisking quickly.
3.  Return mixture to the pot, stirring constantly over low heat until thickened. Strain into a sealable container and refrigerate.

Roasted Apple Beignets
1.  Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss apples with cinnamon and place on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer. Roast until soft and golden brown (about 20 minutes).
2.  Using a 2 oz ice cream scoop, form apples into balls and place onto another parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm.
3.  Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk in milk, egg yolk and melted butter. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold whites into batter.
4.  In a large pot, heat 4 litres of vegetable oil to 335°F, using a candy thermometer to control the heat. Make sure the oil is at least 6 inches from the top of the pot.
3.  Dip each apple ball into the batter and release gently into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, turning frequently.
