I was looking for a donut replacement because paying 50-cents (or more) for a donut is starting to seem a little ridiculous. And apple fritters or soooo easy.
Yes, they look a little homely. But they taste GREAT. Plus there’s actual fresh apple in there. What’s not to love? Or you can leave the apples out and you have that state fair perennial, funnel cake.
1-inch oil for deep frying
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tblsp. white sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup milk
1 tblsp. vegetable oil
3 cups apples, chopped
1 cup cinnamon sugar.
1. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or skillet to 375-degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients.
3. drop small spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil and fry on both sides until golden, about 5 minutes.
4. Drain on paper towels and toss in cinnamon sugar while still hot.
Makes 24 small fritters.
Great for breakfast!
