Recipe: Apple Fritters
Apple Fritters
- 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons of applesauce
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 large apples, peeled cored and diced
- Vegetable oil, for frying
For the glaze:
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
2. Add applesauce and ground cinnamon to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk and eggs. Then, add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until a smooth batter forms.
4. Gently fold in the diced apples into the batter until evenly distributed.
5. In a deep saucepan or frying pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until 375 degrees. The oil should be about 2 inches deep.
6. Drop spoonfuls of the apple batter into the hot oil and fry the fritters until golden brown and cooked through, usually about 2-3 minutes per side. Fry them in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
7. Once fried, remove the fritters from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.
For the Glaze:
1. In a small bowl, combine milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir until the glaze is smooth and has a pourable consistency.
2. Drizzle the glaze over the warm apple fritters.
