Apple Fritters

Standard

My husband really wanted donuts the other day at the store and I said “NO”.  I felt so bad as he got a little pouty.  So I was lucky enough to come across a blog that day from Seeminglygreek.  She had this wonderful recipe to share.  I made these wonderful Apple Fritters in no time with a minor variation that I’d like to share.  Oh yes…. my hubby was happy to get his donuts and enjoyed the Fritters very much!  So thank you Seemingygreek for the wonderful recipe!
Homemade Apple Fritters Recipe:
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 T butter, melted
1 egg
1/3 cup milk plus more if needed
1 – 1 1/2 cups chopped apple
Oil for Frying ( I was out of oil, so used Coconut oil and it worked fantastic and is better for you)
Milk and powdered sugar glaze for dipping or just powdered sugar for dusting
(about 1 cup powder sugar and 1 T milk or more)
Mix all ingredients together, slowly add the wet ingredients minus the apple.  Carefully mix until well combined but not overly beat, gently fold in apples pieces now.  The batter should be the consistency of a light cake mix.  Once the oil is ready, use a cookie scooper or soup spoon, place a few 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.  I cooked mine about 45 seconds per side.  Adjust cooking times based on size of fritters and temperature of your oil.
Wonderful snack, breakfast or desert!!  Once in awhile it’s okay to indulge!  Your family won’t complain either!!
