Sift the cake flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt together. Whisk the egg, milk and melted butter together, then whisk into the dry ingredients.

Heat a layer of oil in a frying pan over a medium to high heat. Once it is hot, dip a few pieces of apple into the batter. Fry until golden on both sides. Drain on absorbent paper. Mix the cinnamon, mixed spice and sugar together and sprinkle over the fritters. Or drizzle with honey, if you prefer.
Milk tart shooters Mix the vodka, condensed milk and evaporated milk together. Chill well. Pour into small glasses. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Serve with warm fritters.
