Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters
When my son and I were out grocery shopping the other day, he spotted a package of pre-made apple fritters. He yelled, “Mommy! Mommy! I want these!” So being a good mommy, like I try to be, I set out to make some at home. Apple fritters are something I have always loved, but have never tried at home. They seemed really intimidating, but after realizing how similar they are to hush puppies, I wasn’t afraid to create a recipe for them. I made these apple fritters with apple cider, cinnamon, vanilla and a touch of nutmeg. They are full of flavor, crispy on the outside, and soft and delicate on the inside. Be warned though, these little apple fritters are very addictive. You can’t just eat one, they keep calling to you, and you won’t stop until the whole batch is gone.

Apple Fritters Recipe

Ingredients

2 eggs
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/2 cups tart apples, peeled, cored and diced in small chunks ( I used Granny Smith)

    Method

    1. Preheat deep fryer or vegetable oil in large frying pan to 350 degrees. If using a frying pan, make the oil about 1 1/2 inches deep.

    2. Combine self rising flour, sugar, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract apple cider, milk and melted butter in a large bowl. Whisk well. Add apples and fold in. Spoon batter by the teaspoon in hot oil. Cook over medium heat, turning once. Fritters only take about 1 minute per side to cook. Remove from oil when done and drain on clean kitchen towel or paper towel.

    3. Dust powdered sugar on fritters and serve warm.

      Sounds yummy! I’m guessing 2 2/2 cups apples was supposed to be 2 1/2 cups? And the approx. yield? Thank you
