It’s apple season and I read an article in the September/October 2018 issue of The Good Life, Central New York Magazine about apple fritters. “We’ll fry if we want to,” are the opening words to MJ Kravec’s story – with a recipe for homemade fritters. The apple fritters looked so scrumptious, I decided it would be a great day to get creative in the kitchen.
I heated the cast iron skillet, collected the ingredients, peeled a couple of apples….
Apple Fritter recipe: ingredients
- 2 New York State apples, diced
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- shortening or oil for frying
- 1 cup sifted confectioner’s sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Heat oil in cast iron skillet.
Combine flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon; add egg and 1/3 cup milk, then stir in apples.
Drop batter by ice cream scoop sized spoonful into hot oil. Fry until brown, approximately 5 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking time. Drain on paper towels.
Make glaze while fritters are cooling by mixing powdered sugar, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk. Drizzle over fritters and enjoy!
Yummy, perfectly sized apple fritters. What could be better on a breezy autumn day?
