As the weather starts to crisp here in beautiful British Columbia, it’s time to start busting out the fall recipes!
I love apples, any kind really! So when my mother in law brought us a bag full of freshly picked apples from her friends farm, I couldn’t help myself.
“What should I make next?! Apple pie? Muffins? Crumble or crisp?” I wanted to do something that was a bit different and fun. Apple fritters are perfect for the cooler weather, who am I kidding, they’re perfect for any season, lol!
I’ve always loved getting an apple or blueberry fritter from Timmies, so when I thought of making them I was soooo excited. I borrowed my father in laws deep fryer and chopped up some apples.
You guys, I’m not kidding when I say I could eat these almost everyday! They’re that good, here’s the recipe;
For the batter-
1 cup All purpose flour
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Salt
1/2 cup White sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/3 cup Milk
1 Egg (always room temperature for baking)
1 1/2 cup Chopped apple of your choosing
For the glaze-
2 cups Powdered sugar
2 tbsp Milk – If the glaze is too dry, add a little more milk!
In a bowl; add flour, cinnamon, salt,sugar, baking powder and mix.
Next, add the milk & egg and combine!
Lastly, add the chopped apples and fold into the batter
You can use a deep fryer, as I did, for the fritters, but you can also use a large deep skillet but make sure the oil is about 2 inches deep. Heat the oil to 375 degrees.
Scoop some batter into a spoon and drop into the oil. I cooked mine for 5 minutes for each side to make sure they were cooked on the inside and not too dough like.
Place cooked fritters on to a plate with paper towel (to soak up the excess oil.) Now comes the best part! Drizzle the glaze over top and serve, best served warm!
