Homemade Apple Fritters

by | Oct 14, 2014 | CSA Member Updates, Recipes

1 heaping cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
dash salt
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon (depending on how much you love cinnamon)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 egg
1/3 cup milk + plus more if needed
1-1 1/2 cups chopped apple, your favorite kind for eating, peanut sized or smaller
oil for frying
milk and powdered sugar glaze for dipping or just powdered sugar for dusting (About 1 cup powdered sugar + 1 T. milk or more)

1.  Mix all dry ingredients together, slowly add the wet ingredients minus the apple. 2.  Carefully mix until well combined taking care not to overbeat.
3.  Next gently fold in apple pieces. The batter should be the consistency of a light cake mix.
4.  When 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.
5.  Be careful not to overcrowd and watch carefully for the underside to turn golden brown, then gently flip over and continue frying until done.
6.  Doughballs the size of golf balls take about 35 seconds per side to cook.
7.  Adjust cooking times based on size of fritters and temperature of your oil, ideally around 365 degrees F.  It is always a good idea to test one to ensure it comes out as expected.
