Yummy Apple Fritters {Another Fall Recipe}

I know I have told you this many of times, but fall really is my favorite time of year. I don't know what has gotten into me lately but I have been on such a baking kick.

If pumpkin or apples are in the house then something has to be baked, or in this case fried. The other night after dinner I was craving something sweet.

I wasn't sure what I wanted, but what I did know was I didn't want anything to complicated or filling. Just a little something sweet. Apple Fritters was the first thing that came to mind.

 I had few golden delicious apples in my fruit basket so all I needed was a few more ingredients and that was it. I couldn't wait to surprise everyone with some fresh hot fritters.
Apple Fritters are one of my favorite little snacks to toss together. Plus they pretty much please everyone big and small. Have you ever had an apple fritter? 

Oh my is all I can say. If you haven't you really need to make them. I just know you will be instantly hooked. Who doesn't love fluffy little cake light apple bites rolled in powdered sugar and served warm.

If you don't like plain powdered sugar you can eat them plain or drizzled with a glaze. My personal preference is warm dusted with powdered sugar. If you are looking for a quick fall treat 

Apple Fritters is your answer. This recipe can be prepared, cooked and served in less than 30 minutes. Now what are you waiting for? Go fry up some fritters.

Mix flour, baking powder, sugars and cinnamon together. Add in milk, egg and melted butter. Stir to combine. Peel and dice the apples add to batter. stir just until combined and set aside. Pour oil into a skillet about 1 1/2 inch deep. Heat oil.

When the oil is hot drop by cupfuls into the hot oil. About 1/8 cup for each fritter. Cook until brown about 2 minutes then flip. Cook until both sides are nice and brown. When done transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel. Dust with confectioner’s sugar.

These little guys are best served warm.

I remember my mom making these when I was little, but without the powdered sugar. They look so good! I may have to break my "no fry" rule for these!

can you use can Apple filling?

Tina Butler said... #

No it would make the dough to watery and mushy. You would specifically need to search for a recipe for apple fritters that uses apple filling to get all the ingredients and correct measurements.
