Made-to-order apple fritters at Purple Penguin Café: Sourced
“Consumed immediately, this disc-sized treat is perfection that could rival a Tiny Tom doughnut in texture, lightness and taste. The apple at its centre, a bit tart and turned to custard, puts that other (still completely awesome) Toronto confection to shame. Even an hour later, when the batter has cooled and its puff has depressed, Smith’s apple fritters are delicious.”
