Yesterday, we covered the caramel dipping sauce, today: apple fritters.
I took this recipe from Deliciously Yum, who keeps a very cute cooking blog filled with very lovely photos. She coated her fritters in cinnamon and sugar, but I had the caramel sauce in mind, so I skipped that part!
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 cup apple (diced)
- 1 cup veggie oil
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
- In a separate bowl, beat together your egg and milk.
- Chop up 1 cup of apple, finely. Mine were about 1/4″ cubes. I could amass this much apple with less than one Granny Smith (my preferred baking apple, because they’re so firm!)
- Beat the egg into the milk, then slowly mix it with the dry ingredients with a spatula. Slowly stir in your apple chunks into the resulting batter.
- In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup vegetable oil on medium-low heat. Test to see if the the oil is ready for frying by dropping 1/4 teaspoons of batter into the oil.
- When at heat, I dropped 1 tablespoon of batter at a time into the hot oil, frying until a golden brown. I removed the finished fritter from the oil after 10-20 seconds (depending on oil heat) with a fork, and let cool on paper towels.
