There is something so amazing and delicious about an apple fritter. You can make them with a yeast dough, but these are made with an easy basic dough and lots and lots of apples. Really, how could you go wrong with a fried spoonful of dough with fresh apples, then dipping them in sugar glaze. That is a recipe for a delicious treat.
Vegetable Oil for deep-frying
2 Cups Flour
¾ Cup Sugar
2 ¼ tsp Cinnamon
1 ¼ tsp Salt
2 Extra Large Eggs
¾ Cup Whole Milk
2 TBSP Melted Butter
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Confectioners’ Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3-4 TBSP Whole Milk
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Add the milk, melted butter and vanilla.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together just until they are barely combined. Don’t over mix the batter. Fold in the apples. You can add more apples if you don’t think the batter looks like there are enough. The apples are the star of the show, so you need to have plenty.
Using a teaspoon, drop the batter into the hot oil. Don’t overcrowd the pot, but you can do several at a time.
Keep your eye on the fritters so they don’t burn. Some will flip over by themselves, others you will have to flip with a slotted spoon. They should take about 2 to 2 ½ minutes to cook.
Drain them on a paper towel lined dish. Dunk them in the sugar glaze or roll them in cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.
You can reheat them in a 350º oven until they are crispy and warm.
