Apple Fritters

My husband and I are both doughnut fans.  I like the yeast variety.  Husband prefers cake.  What we both agree on are apple fritters.  We recently spent some time with a friend who doesn't eat anything chocolate (yeah, weird right?) and I wanted to bring something delicious.  This was an easy decision.  Who doesn't love apple desserts?  

We found this recipe on The Picky Apple.  It was the blog owners creation, and I just recreated it (and didn't change a thing, aside from adding more apple).  

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped apple ( we used more, but we like ours to be really apple-y)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
Directions:   Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon.  Stir in milk and egg until just combined.  Fold in apple.  Pour oil into skillet so that it is approximately 1 1/2 deep.  Heat oil on high.  Oil is ready when dough floats to top.  Carefully add dough to oil in heaping teaspoons.  Cook until brown, about 2 minutes, then flip.  Cook another 1-2 minutes, until both sides are browned.  Transfer briefly to paper towels to absorb excess oil, then transfer to cooling rack.  Make glaze by stirring milk and powdered sugar together in a small bowl.  Drizzle over apple fritters.  Wait approximately 3 minutes for glaze to harden, then flip fritters and drizzle glaze over the other side.  Best served warm.

I would love to hear from you if you make this.  Enjoy!

Yum! This was my favorite donut dessert when I was growing up. I'm almost too afraid to think what would happen if I made them at home as they'd be gone in a flash! Thanks for sharing the recipe (I think)!
