Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters

Today I am sharing these fruity yummy golden apple fritters. They are best served warm, but it’s doubtful that there will be any left before they cool off.  These fritters are studded with diced apples and generously dusted with powdered sugar or rolled in cinnamon and sugar. My youngest daughter even suggested a drizzle of caramel syrup. What a delicious treat!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1-½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1-½ cups chopped apples
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon mixed
  • Powdered sugar

Heat a couple of inches of canola oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. You can also use a fryer that has a set temperature gauge.  I had mine at about 350 degrees.  If your oil is too hot the outside will be brown before the inside gets done.

Peel and chop your apples. I used Granny Smith but feel free to substitute in your favorite.

Peeled Apples

Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add in milk and eggs. Mix just until combined. Fold in the apples. It will be a very thick batter.

Apple Mixture

Before you cook you need to decide the size you want them. I used both a 1-½ tablespoon scoop and a 3 tablespoon sized scoop. The smaller one makes a fritter you can pop the whole thing into your mouth. The other makes one that takes a couple bites. Drop batter into the heated oil. Fry until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes turning once during cooking.

Remove to a paper towel lined plate for just a moment. Then roll in cinnamon and sugar or dust with powdered sugar.

Cinnamon Sugar

Either way makes for a delicious apple fritter!
