    Recipe Introduction

    Who would have thought an apple fritter would get so many requests for a repost? This is my Mom's recipe for Apple Fritters. If you've never had one of these delicious cross between a pastry and a doughnut you don't know what you are missing. It is a crispy cake-like morsel that is to die for! Crispy on the outside and like a glazed Trademarked_Name_1 doughnut on the inside....what more could want? And to be able to make them fresh from your own kitchen is awesome. I make these in... apple and blueberry and they don't stick around long.

    List of Ingredients

    2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon Salt
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    3/4 cup apple cider
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    3 cups vegetable oil

    2 cups confectioners' sugar
    1/4 cup apple cider
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


    Spread prepared apples in single layer on paper towel–lined baking sheet and pat thoroughly dry with paper towels. Combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in large bowl. Whisk cider, eggs, and melted butter in medium bowl until combined. Stir apples into flour mixture. Stir in cider mixture until incorporated.

    Pour oil into a large deep skillet or a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. You should have at least 2 inches of oil in your skillet or Dutch oven. Test the oil to see if it is ready by dropping a pinch of dough into the oil. It is ready when the dough floats to the top.

    Using a measuring cup (I use the 1/3-cup) carefully drop heaping portions of batter to the hot oil. Press batter lightly with back of spoon to flatten. Fry, 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.

    Transfer fritters to wire rack set inside rimmed baking sheet. Bring oil back to the same temperature and repeat with remaining batter. Let fritters cool 5 minutes

    Meanwhile, whisk confectioners’ sugar, apple cider, cinnamon, and nutmeg in medium bowl until smooth. Top each fritter with 1 heaping tablespoon glaze. Wait approximately 5 minutes for glaze to harden, then flip fritters and drizzle glaze over the other side. Best served warm.
