We still have lots of apples left over from our apple picking trip and I have been experimenting with apple recipes. This was an extremely popular recipe with all of the kids (and myself)! Goes great with breakfast or as a snack.
2 cups flour
1/2 cup and 3 Tablespoons sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 whole large eggs
3/4 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 whole Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
Powdered sugar for dusting
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk
In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (first 5 ingredients listed). In a separate bowl, add eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Once each bowls are mixed, gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold in apples.
Heat a couple of inches of canola oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, drop batter by scoopful into the oil. They will sink at first, but as they cook they will rise.
Flip over to cook on the other side. They should be nicely browned.
Remove and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. You may either dust with powdered sugar or dip the warm fritters into the glaze.
Serve warm! These are so yummy they will not last very long.
