While cinnamon and sugar used in apple fritters is documented in German
recipes within the SCA period, I don't know if you are trying to go by a
narrower definition for your group.  Usually SCA groups are pretty
free-form with a multiple of range of time periods represented in a single
camp, so unless there was an understanding about limiting documentary
sources, I'd tend to have a pretty liberal interpretation.

But ultimately, I personally would have given my guest whatever was
requested, documented or not, in the name of noble hospitality.
