Ingredients
  • 2-3 peeled apples (1½ cups when diced)
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 TBS cinnamon sugar mixture (2 TBS sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon)
  • Oil for frying the fritters
Instructions
  1. Combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, and whisk until combined.
  2. In a small bowl whisk the milk and egg until combined, add into dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.
  3. Toss the apple chunks with the cinnamon & sugar and dump the mixture into the batter, stir just a bit to move apples around.
  4. Heat oil to 370 degrees.
  5. Fry heaping spoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) of the batter (being sure you get apples in each scoop)until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes),
  6. If frying in a sealed fryer, shake basked around just a bit during frying to ensure even rotation of cooking. If cooking in an open frying pan/poy, flip fritters using a spatula or fork to ensure even cooking.
  7. Once fritters are removed from the fryer, place them on a cooling rack with paper towels under to catch any drips. If rolling in cinnamon & sugar, do so as soon as you can handle the fritters. If sprinkling with powdered sugar or dipping them in a simple glaze, allow them to cool a bit more.
  8. To make glaze simply combine 1½ cups powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla and 1-1½ TBS milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over fritters or go ahead and dunk them in. If dunking them in, allow them to set for a few minutes and enjoy...they don't really "keep" that way. Fritters are best enjoyed soon after you make them while still warm. For best results fry in batches of 3 or four. I use a small cookie scoop to make dropping the batter into the oil nice and easy.
