Being Creative in the Kitchen


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?
