Homemade Apple Fritters
- 1 heaping cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- dash salt
- 1-2 tsp cinnamon depending on how much you love cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp butter melted
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup milk plus more if needed
- 1-1/2 cups chopped apple your favorite kind for eating, peanut sized or smaller
- oil for frying
- Milk and powdered sugar glaze:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp milk or more
- Mix all dry ingredients together, slowly add the wet ingredients minus the apple.
- Carefully mix until well combined but not overly beat, gently fold in the apple pieces. The batter should be the consistency of a light cake mix.
- Once the oil is ready (when a test drop of dough floats to the top of the oil, a drop of water sizzles, or a piece of white bread browns in 60 seconds)
- Using a cookie scooper or soup spoon, place a 4-5 balls of dough into the oil.
- Be careful not to overcrowd and watch carefully for the underside to turn golden brown, then gently flip over and continue frying until done.
- About 35 seconds per side (golf ball sized) adjust cooking times based on size of fritters and temperature of your oil, ideally around 365°F.
- Always a good idea to test one to ensure it comes out like your are expecting.
