Apple fritters are amazing because to me they are just that good.

I love just about any kind of fritter but I think this one is my favorite.  We don’t have these often because I can’t leave them alone! Children will love them, too.  Serve these for breakfast with a variety of toppings such as honey, powdered sugar, caramel sauce, syrup or whatever your family likes.  We love to sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle with honey.

Apple fritters will become one of your favorite recipes.

2 large apples (I have used all kinds of apples for this recipe) peeled, cored and chopped or cut in chunks

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 eggs

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

3/4 cup milk

2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring

Oil for frying

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl with a whisk.  Set aside.  In a small bowl combine milk, eggs, vanilla, butter and beat with whisk.  Combine two bowls pouring the smaller into the larger and mixing well.  Peel, core, and cut up apples and fold into the batter.  Pour enough oil into skillet to make about 1/4 inch.  Heat oil and drop spoonfuls of batter into hot oil. (I use an ice cream scoop). Cook until brown on one side, flip and continue frying until both sides are good and brown.  Remove and drain on paper towels.  Makes about 1 1/2 dozen fritters depending on what size you make them.
